To Wes and his sisters I hold you in my prayers.
A mother is more than warmth, more than comfort and even more than love. A mother is a connection to an angel that was sent by God.
Once she made the decisions for you then she let you spread your wings and as you struggled to fly she was there to help pick you up and make you try again. Then you flew on your own and yet she was

Judy, Barbara, Connie, Reva and Wes - We are so sorry for your loss. Elsie was a great lady and one that I personally am glad that I was able to know her. I will say this, Elsie will never truly be gone, because she left behind herself through each of you! It is plain to see that each of you have a part of her! Her kindness, strength, personality and perseverance got her through 80 some years and it will carry you all through the days ahead. We love you!
Jerry and Cindy

When I needed you as a child, you managed to selfishly be both my mother and my father.
As a young man, when I needed you the most, you stood by me when I had no one else. You helped me put together and build the loving family I now have.
As an adult, you continued to show me the unconditional love and support that formed our special bond......the bond only a mother and son can have.
Without you in my life, I wouldn't be the man I am today.
I will treasure, love and miss you forever.

Want the family to know you are in my thoughts and prayers through all this. We are so sorry for your loss. I always thought a lot of Elsie. I can remember whenever my 2 sisters and I went to visit WES & Pat and Elsie was there. Elsie was so much fun. She joined in and was just one of the girls and she enjoyed the gossip and laughs and jokes as much as we did. She will be
