I was so sorry to hear about the loss of your husband. Patty saw it on face book and sent me the connection to obituaries. I know it has been a very hard and long goodbye and he will be missed. Just know I think of you often and hope next time I get up that way maybe we can meet. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
Your cousin from Texas, Arla Zoe Arnett

Elmer was a great father, not only to his two sons Randy and Mitch, but also to me. He was a father figure to me, my father having passed early in my life. He provided me with good advise, criticized me when I was out of hand. Elmer helped me to be a better person. I will truly miss him!

My basement is complete and just passed an updated code inspection.Ipassed with flying colors and the inspector said we had done a great job. Many years ago Elmer and I finished the job by ourselves one summer. I got to know what a special man he was. He taught me many things and I remember him everytime I go to the basement. Colleen's and my prayers go to the family in this time of grief.
