  1. Sincere Sympathy

    Elsie was one of the sweetest ladies on earth. I am sad that her family has lost her, but
    happy for her. I know she is rejoicing with her Lord and Savior and is once again with “Buddy”. May God go with each member of her family in the months ahead without her. Lots of love from our family to yours.
