    My sincere condolences to the family. May God provide all of you with strength and courage during this difficult time. In his word God promises to soon bring our loved ones that have passed away back to life again at Isaiah 26:19; and he also promises to remove all sufferings and death forever at Revelation 21:3-5. May these heartwarming promises soon to come bring comfort to the family.

    May you find comfort knowing Elmo is at peace.
    I know Elmo from my days at FEC and from those experiences I knew him to be kind and calm in many trying times. I can only assume he was that way away from work also, and I’m sure his attitude toward life is one of the things I will remember most. May you find comfort knowing he touched many lives in a very positive way and will be missed by all who knew him.
