I met Elmo for the first time at his sister Joyce Robbins 80th birthday bash. I live with his nephew Richard Robbins. Elmo was so kind and sweet and accepted me right from the start. the first thing he said to me was "Welcome to the family". We sat in Joyce's living room with all the brothers and sisters and spouses and they all were recalling childhood memories. It was the most fun listening and laughing along with them to thier stories, and Elmo had quite a few to tell. It was a pleasure and an honor to know him, I will never forget him.
