  1. My Aunt Carr, she was my champion when I needed one. She was one of the people in my life who’s love, understanding and support kept me on a right path, a true inspiration. I loved her dearly and will never forget the things her and my Uncle Jack did for me.
    My heart will forever be a bit empty without her presences but my memories of her will always be a comfort.

  2. My deepest sympathy to Elsie’s family and friends. May you find comfort in the promise at Revelation 21:4 where it says “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” I am truly sorry for your loss.
