My condolences go out to the Galske and Laser families. Elsie's and I were first cousins once removed. Her mother was my grandmother's sister. I met Elsie at her parents 50th wedding anniversery in 1948 when I was twelve. While working on my family history several years ago; I visited Elsie and Bill searching for information. They were very helpful and I enjoyed those visits.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.
