Elsie was a mom of three boys who also took in foster children. She treated them wonderfully, and each left her care with a little savings account from the funds received for their care. Elsie was also a one woman charity -"could I have that dresser when you are done? How about those curtains?" Never saying they were for someone else. Then the items were quietly donated to less fortunate neighbors. She inspired me with her quiet generosity more than any teacher or religious leader could have.
