Sorry for your loss. I remember when Elmer was a volunteer Fireman in Bloomsburg. I grew up next to the fire station so I got to spend some time there with him. I did get to see him last year and re-introduce myself to him. He then remembered me and we spent quite a while reminiscing. He was in good spirits and I will remember him as a good man who did not speak down on his brother. R I P God Speed Elmer
