To our dear Manny,

Please know ...

Your sorrow is our sorrow too ...

Your loss is our loss too ...

Please accept our deepest and sincerest sympathy in the loss of our dearest friend Elsa, your dear wife and friend as well.  At times like this we remember all the best memories we all shared, the best times in our lives when we were all young and carefree.

Elsa’s joy of life we shall always remember.  Her zest for life and courage will always be an inspiration to me and to many.  Although it’s hard to believe she’s gone, her love and laughter and her songs will linger and remain with us forever.  Eternal rest grant unto her soul O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon her.  May she rest in peace.  Amen.

Thank you Manny for being such a good husband to Elsa!  Much love, prayers and thanksgiving for a life well-lived by Elsa and for your love and caring and for all your kindness. 

We are truly sorry for not having been able to join all of you at the funeral.  We can only wish that we were closer and able to be with all of you in person.  Rest assured our thoughts and prayers are with you in every step of the way.  Thank you for understanding our circumstances.  Take care Manny and again thank you and God bless you for being the best and the most loving friend to our dear friend Elsa.  We love you both so much!

My heart goes out to you as well as the Angels I am sending to comfort you at this time.  A couple of weeks ago, when I was alone with Elsa she told me that when it was time she must go with God in peace and joy knowing they would be together.  She then told me no matter what, she would always be with me, I must hold onto that message now as my heart breaks for my dear angel Elsa.  And I am sure she is still with you Marc and always will be. 

God Bless.  Anything I can do please let me know.

My deepest heartfelt love goes out to you and your family and friends who will miss Elsa so so much.  I am just now finding out that Elsa went to our Merciful Lord yesterday.  I had not checked my emails for several days because I started a brand new job, but I have been praying for you and Elsa every day.  I'm sure she passed through the door of mercy that Pope Francis just opened for us.  Thank you for letting us know.  You have many dear friends here who love you, as you keep on, and Elsa will always be part of who we are and will now be praying for us from heaven.

Dear Marc,

I can only start to imagine what mixture of emotions are overflooding you.  My condolences from the heart and prayers for God’s consolation and strength.  Tomorrow morning (Wednesday, adoration day) we will offer our Mass for Elsa and also pray for you and all Elsa's loved ones.  If it works out I can concelebrate at her funeral Mass too on Saturday.  We are very thankful for the precious moments we could spend together at the hospital.  I was very concerned about making her too tired.

Marc, only our steadfast belief in God’s loving gift of Himself in eternity and the sure hope of being united again in Him will help us to find peace in this trial. 

With all my love and prayers, 

Father Matt

We are so saddened by this news.  You are in our prayers for peace and may the Lord wrap his arms around you and carry you through this difficult time.  God bless you, Linda and Kilo

Elsa was so strong and full of courage throughout her illness.  She had the most beautiful smile and sweet soul.  She had a gentleness about her that would draw you to her.  Elsa will be missed by all that were blessed to have known her.  Her friends in Florida will never forget her.
