Condolence from Fred McAvoy on July 12th, 2020 11:02 pm

I just heard this evening of my Aunt Elsie’s passing. I had my father up visiting me in Petit-Rocher and was unaware
of events in Bridgewater. My heart goes out to my uncle Merrill, Jade, Chloe, Abigail, Warren, Marjorie and Brian. All those who knew and loved Elsie will agree we have lost on this earth a very special person. Elsie was my god-mother, a position she took seriously, reaching out to me in my darkest hours. May the best memories we share of Elsie bring a smile to our hearts and perhaps a hope that we may take a little bit of Elsie with us on our own journeys. – Nephew Fred McAvoy
