Sending regards and love to Elsa’s family at this time. I didn’t get it meet her many times but when I did her love for life and her family always beamed off of her. Always so stylish and beautiful (thanks to Luis I’m sure!) she was a welcoming and warm person that will be sorely missed.
Thank you for all the conversations you had with me, for loving me as another grandson.
I’m sure you are dancing and talking with abuelito and having a party up there, see you both soon ❤️
My love and thoughts always with you Luis and your family!
I love you always and miss you so much

A sweet woman, a sense of style, and a kind heart…Elsa was all these and more. I know her family, friends, and our family will miss her. She & her husband (Luis) joined us many times for celebrations or just to share a bottle of champagne. We cherish those memories while living in BC and those memories will live on. My condolences to Luis, Doug, and sisters of Luis. RIP, Elsa.
I’m so sorry for you lost and I wish well for you and all of your family!!! I will put you and your family on my prayers!!!
