My name is Jenny and I was one of the therapists at Ovid Healthcare that worked with Elgin both last year and last month. He is one of our most favorite patients and all of the therapists loved working with him. I will always remember his loving smile and our talks about Michigan State basketball. There are certain people that you will always have a special place in your heart, and for me, that person is Elgin. The other day I was driving home from work and looked up and saw a rainbow, and I knew it was Elgin letting us know that he’s ok, and that he’s smiling down on us.

Sorry to learn of Elgin's passing. Elgin enjoyed his bowling. When I purchased Gateway Lanes in 1981, Elgin was there to welcome me to town and to the Clare Men's league. We bowled against each other for over 35 years. When his brother George passed, my team bowled against Elgin and George on Wednesday night. Shortly after bowling that night, George passed. Because of a position round we were scheduled against their team the following Wednesday night and seemed hard to believe that we just bowled against the brothers and one week later, one had passed. I will miss Elgin. My prayers for Vivian and the family.
