    I remember Elsie coming over to my mom's house to play cards with my sister Josephine and and Libby Lamp. I was probably in my early teens at the time. I always enjoyed when she came over because she had such a great sense of humor and kept us all laughing. I sure do miss those.times. Rest in Peace dear Elsie.
