My condolences to all. As Steve would say, 'she had a smile you could see for a mile'. It was wonderful to see that smile and know something of their lives together. She will be missed. Barbara Houston

We were so saddened to hear of Aunt Elsie’s passing. We have such wonderful memories of visiting with her every time we came to Fogo Island for a visit - her wonderful sense of humour and fun personality was so special that people wanted to be around her all the time. Our deepest sympathy to all of the family - keep your beautiful memories close.
