    Elsie, my first cousin, whom I became closely acquainted with when she and other family members came to our home when Aunt Maude ( Elsie’s mother) was hospitalized here in Citrus Heights California.
    As I began to become acquainted with Elsie I found her to be caring, dependable, dedicated and wanting to be your friend.
    Her physical limitations did cause her to restrict some of her activities but Elsie gave her best effort in what ever she chose to do. Sometimes doing more that she should.
    Elsie followed Aunt Maudes ( Elsie’s mother) enthusiasm when it came to sports. Especially the Calgary Flames. I used to tease her about that subject all the time.
    Let me not forget her faith in Christ which in later years became quite solid. Although she was physically not able to attend Church, She did when she could.
    As scripture states in Revelation 21:4–And God Shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain, for the former things have passed away.
    Elsie all of these things have happened for you, so, Elsie enjoy your new home.

    Ron & Carol
