Hi Doreen & Brian – Our sympathy to you & all of your Family.
I had many conversations with Elmer over the years as I was walking
down or up from the beach. Even today as I walked down the street, I looked into his yard & noticed the chair he used to sit in at the front door. He was a very nice man & will be missed. Sincerely, Kathy
