I just found out last evening that I lost a great friend. Of course I knew him through family, but he used to call on me at the Texas Department of Transportation in Beaumont to get survey information off of our right of way maps. We always had a good visit and as noted by others in this keepsake, he was never without a smile! Such a positive attitude about everything, and a tremendous example for all of us to follow! If you get stressed out about something, just think about this man and picture his smile! I have a feeling he will be employed as a Greeter when he gets to Heaven! Mary and I send our love, prayers and condolences to Elroy's Family! Scott Rollins
