Wanted to express my deepest sympathy for your loss to the Yeager family. Elsie was a great lady. I am sure she will be deeply missed.
~ Deb Stewart
My deepest condolences to you in the loss of your beautiful and vibrant mother. I feel like I have known her all of my life, as a smiling, gentle, involved member of our community. I was so happy to see her and your Father not so very long ago at Dr. Bensing's office. Happier still to find that she remembered me. We had a short and very pleasant conversation. We were all very lucky to know Elsie and I praise our God for taking her into his care until we meet again. Much love to you, Ann, Chuck and to your family.
