Dear Philip and Jualeen,

You dont know me but I am one of the many many people whos life was touched by meeting your Brother. I am very sad to be writing to you under these circumstances and would like to offer you my sincerest, heartfelt apologies for the tragedy that you have suffered on this day. The world is a Dakar place with the passing of Elmer. He will not be forgotten. My prayers are with Elmer and you all. My deepest condolences to you all.

Elmer was a one of a kind individual. A top notch, class act person. One of the very few people that I have ever met, who impressed me in such a way. He gave his time ad self unselfishly to all who were around him. He took 2 days out of his training time for Last Man Standing to ride with a bunch of no-bodys from Arkansas. That is how I came to know him and how I will always remember him. God speed my brother. May God be with you all, family and friends.

Chris White
