Yet another classmate from my Benjamin Syms JHS days departs for eternity.  Elwin was my family paper boy when we lived on Fort Worth Street (right across the street from Coach Hathaway) in Foxbridge.  He was always very polite and very nice.  I remember his sister Pam, a year behind.  My thoughts and prayers go to the family and friends for comfort and peace.  I know Elwin will be missed.  Until we meet again dear classmate.
