To the Elson family,

I was so sorry to hear about Susan. I know she had been thru alot this past year. I will always remember the good times we had at work, at lunch, her parties and on the phone. Who else called her at 6:00 a.m. to come to work? I am so sorry I could not come to the funeral, but I have the flu. All of you will be in my thoughts and prayers. God bless!!
