I am sorry to hear of the passing of your mother, grand-mother and great-grandmother and I thank Debbie for sending me the information. I enjoyed corresponding with Elsie over the years and sharing our remembrances of Bisel Church. I knew her family well during the years we both belonged at Bisel. I pray that God keeps all of you in His loving care. Bill and Shirley Bitticker
