Search all you can and you might fine someone as good, but you will never fine a better person than Elza. I will miss him most every day of the rest of my life. so many things I have learned from him and just knowing that there was always someone there to be my friend was so very comforting for me and for my family. our hearts go out to his wife Patsy, daughter Cathy, and the boys, Roger, Brian, and Joe.
