Our thoughts and prayers are with my Aunt Lois and cousins, Dana, Marty, Linda, Cherie and Leslie. I hope you carry the strength needed to get you thru these times of loss. God has blessed you with a lifetime of a great wonderful man, father and husband. I have a lot of fond memories of my Uncle Elmer. He was a quiet guiding light in my life, especially my youth. He lent me his ear and shoulder when I lost my own father and again when I returned home for the service. Thank you for sharing your life with me Uncle Elmer. You will be forever missed.

Marty and Dana I am sorry for your loss. I enjoyed playing softball and visiting with your dad for years. Growing up on Oakdale St. you guys were the cool neighbors with the ice rink in the backyard. Thanks for the great memories.
