On Thursday, March 27, 2014 an angel departed from this world. Elsita made it her mission in life to help others above all things. She chose to be a teacher at Norma Bulter Bossard Elementary
to help this and future generations. She was the mother of two boys and wife to Jose Baez, who also lost his mother while very young. At her funeral, the priest commented on what had been the largest gathering he had ever witnessed at a visitation. Elsita had many friends not only because she cared for others, but because she had found that giving and forgiving is the force that unites us all. Now this family is faced with the task of learning to go on without a mother and angel in their lives. The youngest boy, Andrew (10), will surely miss his mom every time he takes his insulin shots. Mom would give up her rest hours to monitor his Diabetes more than necessary. Jose Jr. (13), will not play his piano the same again. He might become a great pianist, but his melodies will for a long time express grief. Dad will have to face a house much bigger than he though without his better half. Nothing can replace their mom and wife. Please contribute if you can to help this family recover at least from the economic impact of their tragedy.
