Elmer, it's been 38 years since the day your tour ended. To me it still is like yesterday. We were high school buddies and remained friends Every time I drive by the airport I think of you, every Valentines day is another reminder !!! I miss you and will never forget you. May the Lord keep you in His watch until we are together again.
