Condolence Messages

  1. Sorry to hear the news

  2. My love and prayers are with you all. Will miss her smiling face.

  3. You knew me all my life, you gave me my first bath with loving care and later on in life I took care of you. I will always cherish all the time we spent together in the year and a half that I stayed with you. I love you so much and I miss you and you will always be in my thoughts just little things make me think of you, like the pineapple cake that I helped you make and freezing out in the garage smoking a cigarette or having coffee together or sneaking in the bathroom in the winter to smoke, the times we went out to eat, or thanksgiving with the family and I cooked almost everything to keep you from doing anything. There are so many great memories that I shared with you and I don’t regret taking time out of my life and away from my family to be there and take care of you. I know there was no blood between us but I will always think of you as my adapted momma. Tell Poppa hello from me and I know you are happy to be there with him and Aunt Normie and Uncle Bob. Until we meet again in heaven I will think of you often. Love you forever Your girl.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with each of you during this difficult time. I’m sure dad was waiting at the gate for her so they can get in some kind of trouble.
    Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you.

    She was a wonderful woman who was a great part of my life when I was younger. I loved her more like an aunt than a 2nd cousin. For those of who do know me I am Elsie’s oldest daughter. Prayers are with the family
