I remember Ms Elsie for being such a Sweet, Caring & Loving woman.
She took good care of my daughter Jessica & my nephew Ryan when she ran Dees Daycare. They Loved Ms Dee & couldn't wait to go to her daycare.
And she always remembered them & would ask about them years later.
May You Rest in Peace Ms Dee
We will Miss You!

My heart is hurting for you. Your mom was such a wonderful lady. I have such fond memories of time spent with Aunt Dee. Always hoped that my mom could have visited with her one more time. There are so many memories growing up. Funny how the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of her is her delicious shrimp stew.

Sending love and prayers to all of you.

I am sorry for the loss of your mom. Please know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers even though I will not be there due to other obligations. I have lots of fond memories, but most of all how close her and mom were and how special their bond was. Oh the laughter and the card playing! I know they are once again united in heaven and carrying on as usual and that makes me smile.
Love and hugs to all,
