This was one of the most beautiful remembrance services that I have ever witnessed. There
was a big crowd of friends and family present. In fact, the Chapel looked totally filled -- around 150 people or more. Elsie would have approved.
I did have an opportunity to speak briefly with Elsie's daughters Lisa and Lynne as well as Elsie's husband, Dick Laurens. If you remember, Dick spoke at Margaret Gregory's funeral in 1996.
