    I am so sorry to hear about Aunt Elsa. I so wish Joe and Josie and I were able to come for the funeral and visitation. She was such a neat lady! I just loved it when we would get to spend time with you all. She will be greatly missed. You are in our thoughts and in our prayers. Love to the family. Joe, Dana & Josie Rogers, Tulsa, OK.

    Wayne..I’m so sorry to hear that Ms Elsa has passed away. She was such a role model to all who knew her. I don’t think I ever knew anyone who worked as hard as she did. All her many clients would work only with her. She was a great lady and I will miss her. I’m in Florida until this coming weekend so I will not be able to attend her services but I will be thinking of you and the rest of her family. She loved all of you so much. God bless and keep you in this hard time.
