Please know of my condolences and sympathy on the death of Elsie - I still remember her coming to Mass at Holy Family with Joe - always so gracious and lovely. I am sure she will be greatly missed. I am glad, Annette, that I had a chance to visit with you when you called to tell us about her death. I am sure she was special to you, Tom and the boys. Her example as she aged was a good witness to all of us. Please know that the sisters here all send their prayers and condolences, and special prayers for the family as well. We loved her and all the Schwartz family - God bless you. Love from me and the others. SLuke
