One somehow never gets accustomed to death although
it stares grimly at all mankind and its visit to most of us is
most unwelcome. Death really respects no class or creed -
it is the common denominator for all of us. Kings and labourers
A sudden death like Elgin's leaves immeasurable sorrow for
loved ones more so when it strikes at midterm of one's life at
a time of consolidation and the realization of one's dreams.
Elgin was truly a friend to all. His patience seemed to possess
all the control of temper so many of us lack. He had an abiding
faith in people. But, the thing that seemed to characterize Elgin
most was his charity, even if his means were slender, and I think
they were. He was just unable or incapable of saying, "NO" to
a request. It is almost as if he enjoyed being used though he
would be quick to say he was not being used but was giving a help-
ing hand. I have seen him suffer the greatest emotional pain just
because he could not say no.
Elgin also possessed a remarkable degree reliability. He kept
his word once he had committed himself. Above all, he loved his
family and was a good provider.
I hope the life and example of this honest man may serve to
influence for good those who knew him especially, his young
children. Randy and Rhonda.
The death of a loved one leaves a void that takes a long time
to fill and yet life has to go on, and the realities of life have to
be faced. I want to express deepest condolences to Elgin's mother.
his brothers and sisters and all his children. I must publicly reassure
my dear sister, Sandrine that her loss is our loss and Elgin's death
will strenghten the deep affection which presently exist between her-
self and the rest of us.
May his soul and souls of the faithfully departed
REST IN PEACE
