This week the Bridgepoint family has suffered a great loss. Our beloved Elmo has gone to be with the Lord.
While it’s true that everyone is special, Elmo was a special kind of special. Everyone who knew him absolutely loved him. And what’s there not to love? Elmo brightened a room, just about any room, with his trademark greeting, “Happy birthday” (it didn’t matter if it was actually your birthday or not). If I could describe him in just a few words, I would say that he was a joy-giver. Always willing help, always giving us a reason to laugh, always pushing us to be our better selves. He will be sorely missed.
Elmo was loving husband and father, a consummate musician, a true friend, and an all-around great guy. Most of all, he profoundly loved Christ and His church. And he served his Master faithfully until the very end.
This morning, we think of Elmo with fondness, we pray for Brenda, Ria, Nathan, and Gabby, and we give thanks to God for sharing such a wonderful soul with us.
May his peace and comfort be with us all.
In His love,
Pastor Ed and Sis. Ana
