I thought Elsie was one of the sweetest ladies I’d ever known. She never hesitated to greet me and always gave me a big smile. Warren will miss her, I’m sure. I send him my thoughts and prayers. And she raised gracious and loving children. I know them all. What a nice family. I, along with son Stan, send our heartfelt sympathy.

Dear Mary and Martha,
Your mother would bring your little sister into the salon where I worked for a trim. I enjoyed talking and laughing with her! She was so sweet and had a great sense of humor. I am so sorry for your loss! We will see her again one day! My Love and Prayers are with all her family.
