So very sorry. Elsie was a good friend and she gave me many recipes. The one thing she would chuckle over.... "Elsie the Cow" she was a joy to be around.

What a lovely, sweet lady! Mrs. Smith came to our antique shop in Glasgow for the first time back in the 1990's and we hit it off from day one. We shared our love for antiques and especially the old prints. She came many times and each time she came, she made our day! What a wonderful gift you have had to have a Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother like her. I know your heart is broken by your loss, however, your good memories of this precious lady will always be there for you. May God give you comfort at this sad time. Sincerely, Richard & Carolyn Chambers
