Your family's earthly journey is now complete and you are all together again. I am comforted by that as you have all been missed and loved by your children and those you touched with your goodness.

I know your family was waiting with open arms as you departed your earthly home and arrived at your eternal home. Kevin and Tracy, I know your sorrow right now. He was such a wonderful person. I have so many memories of your dad. I already miss his phone calls and the sharing we did from both of us! May God be with your family and may His presence comfort you. You are in our prayers. RIP Uncle Elmer ... you were, and always will be, so loved ...
