I tried for a very long time, YEARS in fact, to duplicate my mother-in-law's cornmeal dumplings (aka hockey pucks to be enjoyed with collards) for my husband. It has only been the last few years that I have been successful....all thanks to the guidance of sweet Elsie Mae (as I affectionately called her). There are so many reasons why my family loves this family but the hockey pucks probably make me laugh the most!!!! Rest in Peace sweet Elsie Mae, until we meet again!!!!!

Elsie was a woman who loved the Lord and was generous to so many people including my late mother, Golda. Our family shares your loss but know she is walking the streets of gold today on her way to the mansion prepared for her.

Words can't express how sad I am about Elsie's passing. She was a friend I never expected to have. My heart goes out to her family. May God bless them and help them.

Such a delightful lady. I know she will be missed terribly by all her family and everyone who knew her.
