He was married my daddy's youngest sister, Silva Louise. She was 18 and he was 20 when I was born in 1942. They pampered me. She called me "cupie doll".
Oh, the memories. I shall never, ever forget this man. He made such a difference and such an impact in my life.
Uncle Elmer, you will always be loved and missed.
His funeral is Friday, April 18, at 2 pm at the First Baptist Church of Buffalo Gap, Texas.
Elmer, rest in peace with the love of your life, Silva (picture here in 1942).
