To my other mother... Madre... Elsie,

I can't even describe the feelings right now, having to get these thoughts on here is very difficult. You had such an amazing impact on my life, you truly were one of the best, loving, caring, giving, genuine people I know!! I could never be in the house and not be asked all the time if we were hungry or thirsty and telling us we need to eat... You made sure everyone was always OK!! The camping trips when us kiddos were younger, pool parties, Karie and I in dance classes, Vegas trips when we could finally drink (in public) and gamble with you and dad in Vegas. One day you just kept randomly walking by and putting nickels in machines and winning right away! But, I wouldn't expect anything different!! We were all so lucky to have you in our lives!! You will be missed greatly!! Love you mom!!

For my dear Elsie,

Elsie was our 1st Daughter-in-law, but very soon became our Daughter and a big part of our family. She was always there to help everyone. We had a lot of fun together. We were always doing something and soon began planning for our 1st grand baby. She was our best friend and we loved her dearly! I am grateful she won't hurt anymore! I will miss her and never forget her.

Love you Honey,

Mom and Dad C.

I loved grandma because she was a very nice person and spoiled me everyday throughout her life. I will miss her because I will never see her again but she will always be in my heart. My favorite things to do with grandma were going to the zoo, being at Disneyland, and playing on the computer. LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU GRANDMA!

Grandma only:

Did you like my mom more than me? (Circle your answer)

Dear Mike and the kids,

I never remembered my wedding day, and never fogot yours.

Unlike many of us, you guys held the course; and Mike, I am so sorry Elsie's gone.

No mother was ever more proud of two kids than Elsie was of hers.

I knew Elsie as a legal secretary to two attorneys, and of course, as the ultimate soccer, Mother Hen.

Elsie mastered every task, and left too soon.

Bless you all.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time. This is so terribly sad. I have known Elsie for 20+ years and I am going to miss talking to her at tax time. She is one of the best people I have ever met. I will miss sharing stories with her. Rest in peace Elsie.
