Elsie will be dearly missed as she really did “light up a room” with her lovely personality. I feel so honored to have been her hospice nurse. It was always such a joy to experience her delightful personality first hand! She never ever once complained but always asked about others and how they were doing. Sure gonna miss her but so happy to have had the chance to get to know such a wonderful kind person. May she R.I.P.
