I am writing this post with a heavy heart. Elsie Mae, I am going to miss you and our long phone conversations. I am so glad that I kept your voice messages on the phone so that I can listen to your cheerful, sweet voice. I want to "thank you" for taking such good care of my Dad, Jim, especially during his final days. My Dad loved you and with time I grew to love you too. I was blessed with having a second Mom! I'll never forget the Holiday and Summer visits and the wonderful meals you prepared for us. Mark loved how you and Dad made him feel so welcomed into our family. I will always treasure all the wonderful memories we made together. We loved spending time with you and Dad, traveling to Florida and looking for starfish, camping at Pirates Cove, the boat excursions and the fishing trips on Kentucky Lake. I especially loved how you made me feel after my Dad's passing. You welcomed my Mom and myself into your home several times and we made extra special memories. I can imagine my Dad looking down from Heaven and smiling at the three of us! God gave you a "kind heart" and you used it to make everyone feel welcomed.

I know how you loved the Lord Jesus Christ, Southland Baptist Church, and your large blended family. I will surely miss you and I know in my heart along with the Grace of God, that we will see one another again. Elsie Mae, you are finally home, and surrounded with so much love from Jesus, family, loved ones, and friends. I am especially blessed that I have another Guardian Angel watching over me until it is my time to come home.
With Love Always from your second Daughter, Deb
