My deepest sympathy for Elsie’s family. To Jack my prayers are with you. I know how much you loved Elsie and always got her apple butter when we went to the Farmers Market! You shared all the wonderful trips you two made over the years! You shared wonderful memories. I’m so glad I got to know Elsie. She is an angel now . God Bless her. KarenT. Pickering Manor

My mom was one in a million. Her smile, her laughter, the love for her husband, myself, John & Paul, her grandchildren Stephanie, PJ and Madison, as well as her family and friends was never ending. She was always there for all of us.
We shared so many good times from traveling to FLA together , having our nails done , shopping, or just sharing a cup of coffee with her favorite, chocolate covered donut. She was not only my mom but my best friend. I will miss her so terribly, but at the same time, I am so happy she is no longer suffering. Taking care of her over the last four years, was a privilege. Watching her suffer for so long inside her own body, no one should have to live their final years in that manner.
Mom- please sing, dance and laugh with the angels, your parents, siblings, friends and for anyone else you so loved and who loved you, who has predeceased you in death. I know you will be here with me, watching over me every single day until we meet again!
I will love you always and forever.
