Your passing was a very sad day for all of us, cousin Elsa.

I will miss our silly and sometimes serious conversations which kept us both laughing and entertained. We both share the love for gardening and I am pretty sure that you are now enjoying the most beautiful garden in HEAVEN. You were one of the strong-willed, kind-hearted, loving and generous person I know.

I consider myself very fortunate to have you as my cousin. How I wish you could have more time to spend with all of us. I will always cherish our fond memories. You will be missed and will stay forever in our hearts.

REST IN PEACE, COUSIN!

Dearest Tiya Elsa,

I still can't believe you're no longer with us Tiya. I miss you so much and I wish I was there for you more. You always wanted what was best for me. You always told me to be a good girl and to listen to my mother. You were stern at times but had such a gentle heart. I'm going to miss seeing your beautiful smile and hearing your contagious laughter. I miss you and I will always love you Tiya.
I will always remember the sweet moments we shared together. You always took good care of me especially when I was younger. You were always there to comfort me and always made sure I was fed. I enjoyed spending nights at your house so I could spend time with you and Uncle John. At night, we would go crabbing and fishing together at the Coast Guard place. In the mornings, I would always wake up to you playing your favorite music. I'm really going to miss those sweet moments with you Tiya.
I want to make you very proud Tiya. With your love and help, perhaps you can guide me towards a great future. You truly inspire me to be a better person. I want to be a strong woman like you. Even without you here, I know that you are finally at peace and looking down at me. With your help, I want to slowly get back into the Catholic faith and once again find love and trust in God.
When I think of you at this very moment, I picture you in paradise laughing along with Tiyo Willy, Dad, and the rest of the family. Tell everyone especially my dad that I love them with all my heart. I will stay strong for you and take care of my mom. I will strive to achieve my goals and overcome life's obstacles. When I'm struggling, I will think of you.
Take care Tiya Elsa and I love you so much. Keep laughing and smiling with everyone in paradise and one day I can see you again. :) <3

Love always, Cristine

In loving memory of my Ate Elsa Evans,I have not thought that you will leave us so soon.I pray as you enter the eternal life in heaven that you will be blessed and cleanse in Jesus Name Amen.
I admire you for being who you are and your a very strong person not afraid of anything, you fight to the finish. Like you always said to me it’s not about a degree that everyone wants to reach it’s about your true self that defined a person, you are my truly inspiration that I will miss and cherish.
You thought me which ever way as possible and I’ve learned over the years, as I recall you reminded me about my heart ache you always say be careful who to choose pick the right one. I know some day it will come it’s hard to find god will know when that time comes.
It would not be the same without you Ate Elsa , I will try my best to keep the closeness together of our family . I will be missing everything about you , I will always cherish your love and memories that we have. Rest In Peace in Heaven. I will always love and be missing you forever.
Sincerely, Meden

To my dearest sister, Elsa B. Capistrano Evans,

Your journey on Earth has ended and we pray to our Heavenly Father, that you will be welcome to dwell in His Kingdom and have everlasting peace and happiness. We will always love you and keep your memories in our mind and hearts. You will remain an inspirations in our daily life as you are full of wisdom and courage in every endeavor you take.

Your passing is very painful to accept, because I could not imagine not having our daily conversation. You gave me so much courage and support when I needed them. My only consolation is knowing that you will be home soon with the Almighty God where you will finally have the love, joy and peace you so deserved. Love you so much Ate Elsa.
