Elsie was lovingly named after three great-great grandmothers Elsie Grace Daniels, Elsie Pashe & Elsie Roulette. She was a funny happy babygirl, who had the prettiest twinkly blue eyes & a sweet smile that would light up the room. Oh, she just loved to eat and try new foods, a warm huggable gal who liked to cuddle & snuggle, loved to play with her sister, a busy bubbly baby who like to explore. She liked Moana, Pink Fong and Baby Sharks Space Adventures, her dollies, toys, teddy bears, she would sweetly dance to nursery rhymes like, “twinkle twinkle little star” and “you are my sunshine” these songs will have a special memory in our hearts. We will forever cherish precious moments we had with Elsie.
