    I am heartbroken to hear of the loss of a true Gentleman, Elmer (Al) Luhr.

    This wonderful man maybe didn’t say too much, but he had such wisdom and pride for his family.

    He loved a good joke and a good laugh, and when he spoke, you listened!!! 🙂

    I, along with many, many others will miss him and I will always have many wonderful memories of Al in my heart.

    My family’s heart felt condolences and prayers go out to the family at this very sad time.
