  1. So sorry for your loss, Mindy. You’ve been there for her all of these past years and she loved you so much for taking care of her, even though she maybe couldn’t express it near the end. You took care of your mom because you loved her so and didn’t need or want anything from her in return. Just the very special love for each other as only you and your mother have. You were there for her when no one else was.

  2. Elsie was a wonderful woman of faith and poise who blessed our church with music and flowers. She left her mark on our family. You are in our thoughts and prayers I wish I had been able to attend the funeral. Please have comfort knowing Elsie is in the arms of her savior.

    Jeff and Carrie Boots
