As Elsie's daughter (Helen), I was so honored to care for my parents these last few years. I truly want to thank Kayla Turner for helping me care for my Mom. You were so great with her. Marion Odani, for coming to visit my Mom and for all the gifts and cards. Marion asked some of my parents' friends to send cards on Christmas, birthdays, and get well wishes. Linda Lind for phone calls, birthday gifts, Ray & Erick fruit basket, Robin wedding soup and sunflowers that never would open. Jackie, thanks for letting my Mom call you late at night, thinking you were her sister to tell you she was staying at my house. You will always be a part of my family. Thanks to everyone who sent Get Well, Birthday, and Christmas cards to my parents, it surely meant a lot to her. We aren't having a service. Later, the immediate family will have something to celebrate her life. Nevaeh would say RIP GRAMMA SWEETHEART!!
