Virginia, Debbie and Michael
My Aunt Gay just called and let me know about Elmo’s passing. I called the funeral home and gave them my phone number to pass along to you.
I’m so sorry for your loss but I’m happy that you had a really great Dad for so many years. I was thinking about all of you last week and was trying to figure a way to contact you to find out how you were all doing.
Debbie give your Mom a big hug from me.

,Love to you all,

Cyndi
