Else and Frank were the 1st my husband and I had the pleasure of meeting when moving into our home on Doyle Drive. A beautiful couple with a knack for making everyone who came in contact feel loved. We became more than neighbors- we all became great friends ♥. Else was a very courageous, strong and proud woman and always put others needs before herself. She brought so much joy into our lives in the short time we were able to spend together. We will forever hold you close in our hearts Else- May you rest in peace our beautiful friend. XOXO
