We were so sorry to hear of Aunt Elsie's passing. She was a wonderful person. We wanted to come to the services. But as fate would have it our first grandbaby, Madeline Lane, is being born that day. Jack and Elsie have always been there for the family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Jack, Mark, Linda, Gina and families,
It is hard to believe that Elsie is gone-but easy to remember the times our families spent growing up together on Victoria Dr. From the Halloween party in the garage, birthday celebrations, Christmas Eve festivities, pot after pot of coffee shared among friends, trips to Glen Miller Park, and all the help she provided in making "wedding balls" for my wedding. I can particularly remember how she used to laugh at the jokes she tried to retell-even though she often forgot the punch line!

I am not able to be with you on Thursday evening- but please know, you are in my heart.
I wish you peace and many happy memories. Take care of each other.

Dear Jack, Linda, Mark, Gina and Family, I am so sorry to learn of Elsie's passing. We had so many fun times with Card Club and gatherings at Kathy's house. It was an honor to call her friend. I was so happy to see her and you, Gina, at Kathy's party a few years ago. She and all of you are in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you.

Jack and family,

and Family,
Elsie and I were friends working at the Sears store together and I must say she and I had many laughs and she made our time fly by. She was a wonderful friend and helper and I will never forget all the times she assisted me. I will never forget our time after work drinking ice tea and laughing about all the dumb things that had happened at work.
Oh how I wish we could do it all again.
God Bless and be with you all in the days ahead. Linda Brandt
