My daughter went to school with you, Lindsay.
I wanted to let you know how sorry I am for your loss. Elise was so beautiful. I viewed the pictures you have posted, then viewed them again with my husband. She obviously brought her family great joy. Just from looking at her pictures, I wish I had met her.
At the funeral this afternoon, your strength was palpable. I am sorry I never got to meet your beautiful daughter.
By the way, every picture of Elise in a hat 👒 made me smile.

Your family is in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. We didn't get to meet Elise on that many occasions but I always remember the Christmas Party we had at our house and you guys brought the kids over. Kaitlyn spoke frequently about the fun time she had entertaining Elise and Ethan.

There are no words to express the feeling of loss, but there are even less words of comfort in a moment like this. Elise was full of life, rambunctious, always smiling, full of love for her family and all around her. She will be greatly missed. Lindsay & Eduardo, may God provide you the comfort on knowing that she is with Him and is no longer in pain, but rejoicing in His presence and His Glory. You will be in my prayers and know I'm here for you always! Love you all!

We were blessed to meet Elise just once but she will forever hold a special place in our hearts. Surely she's above us all, dancing and playing carefree. We will forever be Bumping for Elise! Much love and prayers from Steve, Bridget, and Niko!
