My deepest sympathy to the LeBlanc family. Mr. Elridge was a very pleasant man making servicing him at the bank a most blessed task. Such a sweet, loved filled couple were Ms Lou and Mr. Elridge. May you find comfort in the difficult days ahead with the knowledge that your beloved Elridge now rests in the arms of our Lord. May he rest in peace.
