Now there are four...

Allen Wayne, Elmer Lee, Addie Mae, Jimmy, Alice "Sis" and Butch.
Dallas is missing from picture

In Jimmy's family there were seven brothers & sisters. Last night Jimmy's oldest brother, Elmer Lee, passed away at the age of 92. He will be missed by all that knew him.

Elmer Lee is wearing the white shirt and Sis is in the blue pants suit. They both died within a couple of months of each other. Jimmy's brother Dallas died after open heart surgery in 2000.

It's a sad and somber day here today.

A brother is someone
with fun-loving ways
with wit and good humor
to spare.
He does thoughtful things
without any fuss
and when you're in trouble
he's there.
A brother is more
than just part of the family..
he's also a friend
through and through.
And that's a description
that certainly fits
a wonderful brother like you.
Take Cave Love ya

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. Elmer certainly lived to a ripe old age, but it's always hard to lose a family member.
Please give Jimmy a hug for me, and have him give you one too.
