I am so sorry to hear of Elsa's passing. I have tried to find her for about a year now and had no luck. She was a wonderful friend to my mom Anna Marie Barlow (a playwright) and visited the family often years back when she was in NY more. What a wonderful talented and kind woman! I heard from her via letter over a year ago but would be grateful to hear from anyone. My condolences to her family .
