The first time I met Elmer three things popped into my head about this man. He looked distinguish, elegant, and he showed charisma. The guy got some moves on the dance floor too. Feeling really sorry for Sherley because she is just such a sweet lady. I’m so sorry for your loss. Our memories of Elmer will never be forgotten but instead he will be praised more because he was very special person to so many people that he touched. God bless you pal and Shirley you have to find the strength to carry on with your life because that is what Elmer is expecting for you to do right now. We have you in our prayers. Take care
