Anthony & Family, Sorry for your loss. It is difficult to bury a loved one. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. It helped me to know as has been said "Grieving is the price you pay for loving." We were classmates at West Irvine & Estill County High School those that call me "Joyce "during that time.

So sad to hear of Elmo's passing. He used to tease me a lot at ECHS basketball games when I was a boy. I remember one time he asked me how to spell gnat. Of course I left the "g" off and said nat. He got a big kick out of it. He also picked me up a lot when I was going to high school and hitchhiking to school and home after basketball practice. He was a good man. God Bless the family.

Jewell and family, This is such a bittersweet time. Knowing and wondering how to go on with life after the passing of someone you have loved a lifetime is one of the hardest things you will ever endure and yet you know he is without pain and suffering and he has gone to be with our Lord is a great comfort. Prayers for all of you during your time of need.

I am saddened by the news of Elmo’s death. He was always so kind to me & my children. When Josh played basketball with Seth, Nathaniel, Josh & Jonathon, he was always there to support the whole team & encourage them & the Same for baseball! He was a loving supportive, husband, father & grandfather! His legacy lives on thru his children. My prayers are with all of you! May the Lord give u comfort during this time.
