My deepest sympathy to Elmer's family and friends. The scriptures so lovingly let us know that if you draw close to God in prayer, "He himself will sustain you". (Psalms 55:22) So as you think about your dear loved one, may the God of comfort embrace you and bring to your minds joyful memories.

I worked will Uncle Elmer for seven years on the farm and they were some of the best years of my life. We would spend each milking discussing and solving the world problems. It was hard work at times but it was always fun. The trip to the Random Lake Co-op about once per month to have a load of oats and corn ground up into feed for the cows was always topped off with a bottle of Orange Crush soda and an Eskimo pie. He was always ready to help out a neighbor or someone with car trouble that would pull into their drive way. I will miss him Love his Nephew Joe
