    Elsei had a wonderful kind and loving heart. She was very well loved and respected by everyone who was so lucky to meet her. She was a great neighbor who loved everyone around her. My family and myself loved her so much as she always treated us as our second mom. She always greeted us with a beautiful smile and a loving warm hug. Even when she was in her 90th she never forgot my kids birthday. Our prayers and thoughts with the family. May God gives you peace and comfort in this difficult time.
