So sorry to hear about cousin Elgin (L. J.)
He will always be remembered for his beautiful smile. My name is Delilah Henderson, Willie Humphery’s daughter.
My Dad and Elgin were first cousins.
They were very close. Please take comfort in knowing that he will never be forgotten.
The Bible tells us at 2 Corinthians chapter 1 verse 3 and 4 that God can comfort us.
Our prayers and thoughts are with all of Elgin’s loved ones at this difficult time.

Uncle Elgin,
It is with deepest sorrow and sadness that I write this tribute to you.

I will never forget you, Your big beautiful smile. Your bravery, Your caring and watchful eye which now peers at us from above.

I was fortunate enough to have you as an Uncle, My Kindergarten Teacher, and Hero.

I will always remember you.
I will keep with me, the good times we’ve shared.

Your leaving us came as a shock.
We did not expect it, and wish we had more time to enjoy you. God in His Infinite Wisdom
knows best.

May Our Lord comfort and sustain your family, now and always.

May God Almighty keep you safe resting in perfect peace. Amen!

Elgin Simon came into my life as the father in-law of my sister Piper Baines . Elgin always made you feel welcome and would share anything he had to make sure everyone was happy. Elgin was a respected man but it was the quiet work he did in the lives of people that will live long after his memory. We are all better because of having Elgin as apart of our family and lives. Elgin was a fun and loving presence in our lives and we will never forget him. When we all get to heaven, what a day of rejoicing that will be! When we all see Jesus, we'll sing and shout the victory. REST IN PEACE ELGIN SIMON

To my father in law Elgin Simon, there's so many things I could say about our relationship. But, I know I told you that I loved you, but that last time I said this was about a week ago; now I must share this once again I have loved you until the end.

I remember the day when Carl introduced me to his dad, your facial expression's showed how you were so glad. Our acquaintance to each other grew and grew, I could always trust the thing's I told you.

Our road trips and hearing you say "Piper your a back seat driver". These memories I will always treasure and knowing we had remarkable times together. The family dinner's and the birthday celebrations, shall remain in my memory and close to my heart.

One of the best gift's that Carl and I gave to you, was your granddaughter Camille Lillie'Dawn Simon on June 16, 2001. We called you to say, your granddaughter is on her way. When you arrived with this smile on your face no one could ever replace. We thank you for being at the hospital through all the pain, but the most important thing she has your last name.

Season Greetings and other holiday's won't be the SAME, but at least your in no more pain. A brilliant and remarkable man that's who you were to me, you had nothing but positive energy. I will continue to listen to our Saturday blue's radio station 88.1 and groove. I will be visualizing you patting to the beat just grooving and seeing that expression on your face.

I treasure the day's we would go to WINCO and SMITH'S too, you and I along with Camille sitting out having a burger with you at IN and OUT on a nice warm evening. I feel like this is a dream that is so cloudy, but it's real Papa your now seating on GOD'S hill. The gates were opened before we knew, GOD had a special place for you.

O.K. you have always been our KING, enjoy the throne and fix your crown. Papa I will call you, when I feel down. So answer the phone for me.
