Dear Gwynne and Gary - Rick and I want to extend our sympathy to you and your family. It has been a long time since we have been in touch, and have fond memories of the visits we had with you following our graduations from WLU. I'm not sure if you know that we are living in Arizona since 2004. My father (Harold Widrick) saw your dad's obituary and gave me the details. Please know you will be in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Lois

We were sorry to hear of Wilmer's passing and our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this sad time. It doesn't seem that long ago that he was picking Scott and Dana up on the big yellow school bus! Share and treasure your memories. Take care, Don and Marie

My thoughts and prayers are with you in your loss of a fine gentleman "Elmer". It has been a pleasure to be his visiting nurse.

Elmer was so wonderful as our bus driver. I remember when he would bring treats at Christmas and we all looked forward to the last day of school and what he would have planned for us. Only Elmer would have let me come home with him after school so I could walk to my aunt's house. Without that I could never have gotten to my gymnastics class! I tell my boys stories about the bus and what fun we had.... all my thoughts and prayers to you and your family.... Kim (Shupe) Francis
