Larry and I would often comment on Elsie’s warm smile and welcoming hospitality as she and Ernie would kindly open their home to our Bible study group in Fox Creek. She also made great peanut butter cookies and I have the recipe to this day. They are delicious!!!
My prayers go to our living and loving Lord on behalf of Ernie and all the family for His peace, strength and grace during this time.

I am so sorry to hear of Elsie’s passing. My sympathies to Ernie and the family. She is home with her Lord and Saviour.
