My heart felt condolences to each of you and you family members. Having visited Elsie in Cedar Springs many times with Steve being a close friend of (22) years, I will remember the respect Elsie had for the reading of the King James Bible.
Before opening the sacred text Elsie would put everything else down and focus on the reading.
