"She's in the sun, the wind, the rain, She's in the air you breathe with every breath you take. She sings a song of hope and cheer, there's no more pain, no more fear. You'll see her in the clouds above, hear her whisper words of love, you'll see together before long, until then listen for her song, - Christy Ann Martine

Volunteering has been such an important part of my life, and for that, I'll always be grateful for Elsie my friend.
One of Elsie’s favorites songs that she would sing to me (Automobile Of Life)
