Philip,

I wanted you to know that I'm thinking about you and your family and that you are in my prayers. Elmer was an excellent person and will be sorely missed by all who knew him. He had a focus, a drive, and perseverance that I have never known in another person. It was inspiring. I feel better for having known him and I know that I'm not the only person that he inspired. That is a good legacy to leave behind. It was an honor to be his friend as it is to be yours. Know that between Troy and myself you always have a home here in America.


God Bless You,

Steve Forshee
