Rev Elsie was my Spiritual Guru from 1990 on. An incredibly beautiful soul whose breadth of knowledge was wonderful. She taught us so much. She knew that I could sing, so she got an extra microphone and put it up front for me. She saw my Christ consciousness before I did. That mic sat up there for about a year before I got up there and sang my heart out. She loved me before I could love myself. I will miss my Rev. until I see her again. I love you Elsie. Have a ride on a blue butterfly for me. ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”โค๏ธโ˜ฎ๏ธ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ‹I know you are an ascended Master. ๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ‹๐Ÿฆ‹โค๏ธโค๏ธ

I first met Elsie at Unity Village, Mo. we both worked at Silent Unity and I was in my second year of Ministerial School. She had the greatest laugh and the deepest prayer consciousness of anyone I knew. When I moved to Buffalo in 2011 she showed me around and we reconnected on the profound spiritual level we shared. I havenโ€™t been in contact with her for several years, but have thought of her often. What a shock to read of her passing. Elsie, I love you and bless you on your adventures in a new dimension. Your physical presence is gone, but your essence remains as long as I doโค๏ธ

RIP dearest Elsie. I have such beautiful memories of you during our days at Unity of Buffalo. I enjoyed each and every time we connected at Unity! I will always remember you full of life, love, joy and happiness. I remember your commenting to me on several occasions, that I reminded you of a sweet happy puppy dog. I always felt your love when you would say that and now even more so now that I see you requested donations to Niagara SPCA in the name of your beloved dog. I may have not connected with you in the recent days, but for sure you have always been and will continue to be in my heart. Thank you for being LOVE in expression.

So sorry to hear that Elsie has passed. I remember both Elsie and her sister Barb during my high school years at Kenmore West. We were in classes together and especially the afterschool sports. We always had fun. Have not seen anyone from KMW since I graduated since I was a busser from Grand Island. Fond memories of Elsie and Barb. RIP Nancy Luther Sandford
