    Love, LeNorman and Bernice

  3. My deepest condolences, the few times I have been in her presence I was absolutely enriched. I/we were all graced to be together for our first Elliott Family Reunion in August 2015 that happen largely due to her connecting our families. We had so much respect and adoration for her because my late mother Dolores Elliott had done her part to keep wonderful memories of Cousin Bessie alive and well in us until we saw her in recent years.

    Such a beautiful spirit and wit and I am better to have met her Thank you, your daughters are such a reflection of your joyful, fun loving spirit and wholesome beauty.

    With Love, Greta and Family
