Elisse, you were always kind to me, and I had very few friends in high school, and you were always so kind to me. I wish we had more time. I hope to see you again one day. Praying for your family to find peace and comfort.

Elisse, you and I have been friends for nearly 20 years. You were always there for me. Anytime I needed you. You always knew just what to say to brighten my day. I have so many memories of us together through the years. We shared a lot of wonderful moments. I love you from the bottom of my heart, and I will miss you everyday. You were my best friend. I think you were considered best friend to many. That's how amazing you were. I know you're in a better place. And you better be playing skipbo with the golden girls up there! Until we meet again, love you.

I hadn't seen Elisse in at least a couple of years and unfortunately we hadn't talked much lately. But I will always remember her smile, her laugh, and her easy going nature. She had a good heart and I hope that she's found peace. I'll miss you.

Jan, I am so sorry for your loss. Losing a child is the worst thing I can imagine. I know your strength and belief in God will guide you through this horrible time. May you take comfort in knowing she is not suffering and in a better place. Sincerely, John & Donna Clemen

Jan, Marvin, Dion, and family... I am so very sorry to learn about your loss of Elisse.
Fortunately, death is only a temporary part of life. Jesus promised us a wonderful resurrection of the dead (John 5:28,29/1 Thessalonians 4:13, 14), so we have the hope of being reunited with our deceased loved ones. In the meantime, even though the pain of loss through death may sometimes seem insurmountable, rest assured that God will give you the strength necessary to endure the coming months (Psalm 46:1).
Please accept my deepest sympathy and sincere condolences and please do feel free to contact me.
