    We were very sad to hear of Elsie’s passing, but remind ourselves that we were all so very blessed to have been her friends. As Helena said of Hermia, “Though she be but little she is fierce”. Fierce in her love of life, family and friends. Elsie’s memory will always be a blessing, and I believe thoughts of her will always bring a smile to our faces and to our hearts.

    I am in tears after reading of Babes passing. What a shock! She and Andy and my late husband Frank and I were good friends for years after meeting on SPI. They traveled to Ohio one summer for about two weeks and we did lots of fun things together, including a trip to Niagara Falls. For several years we helped them with bingo at Isla Blanca Park on SPI. My heartfelt condolences to you, I grieve with you.

    God bless my wonderful sister. She will be missed for ever.

    I’m going to miss our FB chats and sharing of Knippa memories.
    I think she enjoyed pictures of my GKids as much as I did!
