So sorry to hear of the passing of Elsa, I have so many memories of her when a young girl in our church. Think of the days in church with you whole family. As an adult I visited with her at the assisted living home outside of Bloomsburg, checking with her where all you "kids" were. I am very sorry for your loss and will keep all of you in my prayers.
