I worked with Elsie for many years at Cook Incorporated. She invited me on a trip to the Phil Donahue show in Chicago. It was a good trip and I will always remember that trip. She also made me a baby blanket for my son Ryan.(I still have that today). She was always so happy every day. She was a great person and I will always remember her. I am so sorry for your loss. She was a very special person.
