  4. Dear Diann & Dad Donald, Elmer & I are holding you in our hearts with hope that you will find some comfort in the fact that you are not alone in your grief at the loss of your brother and son respectively. I remember your stories of his delight and competitive nature when he played Trivia Pursuit. How he was excited to share his latest concoction from the kitchen and how you each conspired to best each other by either pulling a prank or scaring each other.
    We are sorry we can not be there in person for you, please know we are there with you in spirit. Karen Shaw & Elmer Alcott
