In Memory Of Mr. & Mrs. Earnest Grismore's daughter:
On July 28, 1946, a new bundle of joy entered the world, Laura Constance Lind, more commonly known to her friends and family as “Koni”. She grew up in various households due to her parents’ divorce and her mother's career as a lounge singer and actress. After graduating from high school she started college studying child education. It was then that she met the love of her life, Kenneth Hollerich. They married on June 25th, 1966.
As a homemaker and military wife, Mom was an accomplished cake decorator, seamstress and dance instructor. She always said that the thing she was most proud of is her four kids, Tammera, Tina, Tary and Tony. Mom also participated in many of the events of her kids such as, girl scouts, boy scouts, Sunday school teacher, softball, baseball, cheerleading and swimming coach. As a girl scout leader she had the honor of welcoming President Ford to Elemendorf Air Force Base. While moving to several different bases, she went back to school and began her teaching career. Mom spent the next 33 years positively impacting hundreds of children. One of her greatest legacies was knowing that the impact was not only to the children she taught but also future generations. Her passion as a gifted and talented instructor was evident in her innovative teaching style, keeping her kids engaged and enhancing their passion for learning. She was honored to join one of her students who received Presidential recognition and she met yet another President – Bill Clinton.
After retiring, Mom continued her passion for sewing and crocheting. Many have had the pleasure of staying warm from one of her wonderfully crocheted blankets. She also loved her embroidery machine, creating matching towel sets, more blankets and personalized clothing.
By far Mom’s most favorite times was being surrounded by her family. Whether camping, barbecuing, eating turkey on Thanksgiving or opening gifts on Christmas morning, Mom was most happy surrounded by her husband of 52 years, 4 children and 5 grandchildren. The best thing that she left behind for us is her example of loving unconditionally and keeping family close.
But greater than the sorrow from her death is the joy that she has spread to all. Just as she guided each of her students, her wisdom and love will continue to guide each one of her children and grandchildren for generations to come.

Jimmy Dale Elkins
Jimmy Dale Elkins was born on July 27, 1953 to Gene and Adeene Elkins in Texarkana, Arkansas. He came home to Texas Aug 1 of 1953 and lived out his life here. He was preceded in death by his soul mate Patricia, his mother Adeene, father Gene and his nephews Kenny and Phillip. Jimmy was survived by his children Dylan (Vanessa), Robin (Mike), Ashley (Danny) and Jason; his sisters Dian and Phyllis; brother in law William; his grandchildren Noah, Landry, Jasey, Jakob, Braden, Arjun, Navi, Patrick, James, Jaxon, Lyric, Patricia, Denise and Elliott; and many beloved relatives and friends. Jimmy served in the United States Army from August 18, 1971-August 20, 1973 where he was a tank mechanic, gunner and driver. He received the National Defense Service Medal and Marksman M16. He was especially proud to have been a care taker of General Patton’s Museum. Jimmy took great pride in his service and was a true patriot.
When Jimmy was 12 years old he had a dream of a beautiful lady on a swing. He knew he would marry her someday. Years later his good friend Butch introduced him to his sister Patty and she was the girl from his dream. They were married less than 3 months later on June 23, 1980. Together they raised 4 children: Jason, Ashley, Robin and Dylan. Through their example they taught their kids what faithfulness, commitment and perseverance are. They were married over 31 years and had reached the point in their marriage where they made each other laugh all day and could read each other like a book, they weathered many storms in their life together and faced them all and came out stronger for them. They were devoted to one another and to their children and grandchildren.
Jimmy was the best dad/daddy and all 4 of his kids looked up to him and were blessed to have him. He taught them what sacrifice and hard work are. He was a friend to his many nieces and nephews and was the best listening ear. He loved his parents and sisters and looked up to them. To him, his in-laws were true family and great friends and he was proud to be part of their lives.It is impossible to consolidate the essence of a man into a few short words. Jimmy was a quiet man with a big laugh. He always had a joke, a tidbit from the news or a song to share. He kept to himself but loved to visit, talk and listen to music with his loved ones. He kept up with his good friends and their regular phone calls were a highlight of his days. Jimmy was very handy and could fix most things. He loved music, cars, nonfiction and historical books, the Texas coast, and playing guitar. He loved having his family over and watching the grandkids run around. That meant everything to him. Jimmy had become a pro at Wii Golf.
He started playing with his son in law Danny but quickly became the best golfer in the family. He loved TCU baseball and the Dallas Cowboys.
April 20 of this year Jimmy was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer with metastasis to the brain. He underwent brain surgery on April 23 and began radiation in May. He decided to stop treatment and go home to be with his family. Throughout his illness, he never complained once, he bore everything with a quiet resolve that has left us in awe. Jimmy affirmed his belief and faith in God and asked to be baptized, and he was. He died at home surrounded by his children. The last words he heard were words of love and he was at peace.
Jimmy will be memorialized Sat June 9th at 2pm at 3816 Chestnut St. Ft. Worth, TX 76137. He will be buried with full military honors on Weds June 13, 2018 at DFW National Cemetery 2000 Mountain Creek Parkway Dallas, TX 75211. It is very important to arrive several minutes early as the cemetery has many funerals per day and they keep a tight schedule. In his memory and honor and in lieu of flowers, we encourage you to give what you can to the homeless or a struggling young family.
