    To Mike, Linda, Laurie and Bea:

    We were very sorry to hear that Elsie had passed away. I grew up on Auburn Ave. and knew the Johnsons and Reinweilers.

    Elsie was such a nice lady and our families knew each other. I remember Mike, Linda and Laurie with much love. My deepest sympathy also to Bea.

    Take care and God Bless you all.
