We have so very many fond memories of my Uncle Elmo, Aunt Ann and all my cousins. We spent a great deal of time together as we were growing up, and it made for a lifetime of memories that we will cherish forever. My mother, Dorothy, and her sister, Ann, talked by phone everyday until we lost her two years ago. My sister, Linda, has always tried to continue where our grandmother left off, by always making it possible for our family to be able to be together each year. We have all been able to share our joys, our sorrows and our love for one another in a very special way. Uncle Elmo was a very fun,l loving, and proud man and was always very loving and proud of his family. We love you all and he will always remain in our hearts and minds, with pride and joy and love. You all are very special to us, and we are here for you, always. Rest In Peace Uncle Elmo! Keeping you in our thoughts and prayers, Billy Mosley, Jeff and Linda Bennett and family, Mike and Debi Wooten and family, and David and Pam Mosley.

My Dad served his country in Korea. Upon returning home, he married my Mother in 1954. We were raised true Christians & belonged to Iuka Baptist Church. My Dad was the most generous and kind man I have ever met. His mother-in-law used to joke that my mother got very lucky when she married Elmo. We love you Daddy. :heart::pray::heart:
