    Mr. Elmer and I worked together for years with Continental (Contel) Telephone. Always enjoyed working with him, he was a man of principle and he wanted things right in regard where he had the responsibility.. Not many being made like Mr. Emler. He was a good man and loved his family very much. He will be missed.
