  3. Dear Family, With a heavy heart, I offer my condolences. I was deeply saddened to hear of Elsie’s passing. The sweetest person I have ever known, I will always cherish the memories I have of her. She was an angel in the truest sense and an ideal example of devotion to family and faith that will not be forgotten. Thank you, Elsie, for having touched the lives of me and my family.

  4. I was deeply sadden for all who loved Elsie when I heard of her death. Yet, I rejoiced for her- for now she is with her God smiling- in a place of eternal peace and comfort. It was my privilege and honor to have known Elsie. Her faith was inspiring and uplifting. She said on more than one occasion to me, that she was ready to meet God and looked forward to that day. I will remember her with love and joy as I celebrate Easter this year, confident that Elsie now knows the joy of God’s promise fulfilled! God bless you all- your love and devotion have also been an inspiration to me. May the love and memories you have shared sustain and strength you in the days ahead and may you know the peace that comes from deep faith and trust in a God of transformation who will turn your sorrow into rejoicing one day! I regret that an obligation on Saturday prohibits me from attending the service at Masonic– please know you will remain in my thoughts and prayers- Love, Doreen (Bottone) Chaplain at MidState Medical Center
