as told by their daughter and longtime
2/13/04 Elmer and Terri thank you all for the wonderful
support in the cards, flowers, and special gifts.
Terri and I were both with Elmer tonight at 7:10 as he
joined his Lord. He was very peaceful and now is out
of pain. ~Barb
8/27/05 My dear mom lost her
battle with cancer last night around 10 pm. Denelle
and I were at her side. She had a very peaceful death
and is now with her Lord and my dear father. Please
thank everyone from Share-a-Card for the wonderful
gifts and cards throughout her and my father's
illnesses. They both spoke so highly of all of you and
Suzanne and for this wonderful organization and group.
Our deepst sympathies to Barb and her family.
Elmer lost his mom at 4 yrs. old and sister at 14
yrs. of TB. He lived with his dad and cousins. His dad
was 51 when he was born, so he basically had to take
care of his dad. He met his wife Terri just after WWII
where he nearly died from pneumonia. We think this
illness was God's way of protecting him as most of his
buddies died where he was fighting. He lived a
wonderful life with my mom but has suffered many major
illnesses. He was diagnosed with prostate cancer about
12 yrs ago and was in remission until just recently.
He also suffered and abdominal aneurysm surgery for
which his heart stopped during the surgery. He also
endured bypass heart surgery and major artery
reconstruction of his leg due to more aneurysms. My
mom has been taking care of him, but has also been
diagnosed with bladder cancer for which she just
finished chemotherapy about 2 months ago. They both
are very Christian people and have always given
everything to help anyone else. My dad has started to
hemorrhage and aquired an infection which also has
shortened his time considerably.
Terri would appreciate anything Christian.
