    Your Mom and my Mom were good friends growing up on the North Hill and together they sang “In the Garden” which they both wanted to hear at their funerals. With sympathy to you and your family. Marg and Don Weber

    I share the sadness of all the others who loved Aunt Elsie. I have wonderful memories of time spent with Elsie and Mel on their trips through the Okanagan and I’m forever grateful to her for the loving kindness she showed my Mom in her later years. She will be missed.
