"Elsie was such a loving lady. She always had a kind smile and loved her children as well as my own. I would never have made it through college without her support. She was a huge part of my childhood as well. I can?t remember a party or a parade when she wasn?t hostess to all of us for the day. Always made us comfortable and part of the family. I will miss that smile and how easy we could just sit and chat about anything. Love to all the my cousins.??"
