    We are so sorry to hear about Mr. Elmore's passing. The loss of a loved one is difficult, but our Heavenly Father gives us reason for hope. He promises at Revelation 21:4 and Isaiah 25:8 to put an end to tears, pain, and death. Reflecting on this divine promise can help strengthen your family for the days to come. Take care.

    Extending deep and heartfelt sympathy to the beloved Elmore family. I am very sad to hear of Doc’s passing! I have so many cherished memories of Doc and Tommie. You guys were so very good to me – you opened your home to me and treated me like your daughter. I have nothing but memories of love, fun, and laughter within the Elmore’s home during my time there -- sharing some of the best times with my best friend, Elizabeth, during our adolescent years. Mr. Willie “Doc” Elmore, Rest in Peace. . . .please know you will be missed. “When someone you love becomes a memory the memory becomes a treasure” (Karen Hascheck) Love always . . .
