We are so saddened by the passing of Harry "Elmer". He was our beloved neighbor since we moved into our house seventeen and a half years ago and we couldn't have asked for a kinder, nicer, or more giving neighbor. Whether it was letting us use his pool, the kids to play in his yard, sharing vegetables out of his garden, or just sharing conversation with us Elmer was always there and we will treasure many great memories with him from over the years. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. Rest in peace dear Elmer, we love and miss you.
