Elsie was one of my favorite customers. When she could not drive any longer, I would tell her I would come by and wait, I would come to her door. Driving down the street there would be Elsie standing out by the street waiting for me. she was such a character and i enjoyed her stories and tales of her life. My thoughts are with her family.
