I’m so sorry to hear of Aunt Elsie’s passing. I just received the most recent update from Bea a couple days ago, so was shocked to hear this news. She was very special to me all my life, and I will keep all my precious memories of so many moments with her dear to my heart all my life. May she Rest In Peace.
