Elmer “Sarge” Moffett

May 29, 1938 — October 30, 2013
“First came his date of birth, and then the following date with tears, what matters most about Sarge though is the dash between those years. For that dash represents all the time that he spent alive on earth … and now only those who loved him know what that little line is worth. For it matters not how much he owned, the car, the house, the cash. What matters is how he lived and loved and how he spent his dash.” — The Dash
