“Thank you for the thoughtful poem and forget-me-not seeds. I will plant them in my garden if it ever gets warm enough. What a great idea.

Gentle and caring, Elmer was deeply respected for his intelligence, compassion and strong God-serving life and ethics and lived a life blessed by God and in His Service.
