Elise was by far the most amazing person I have ever met, I told her this daily. Her smile was so genuine and warm. Her eyes were the bluest blue and so full of life. Elise had the biggest heart and never ceased to amaze me with her capacity to care for others. Elise have hugs that were out of this world and was always so positive. She loved music and animals. Despite her quiet demeanor she had a powerful way with words. She spoke eloquently and wrote beautifully.
