Elisa was a warrior. She fought for years to ensure her health, and her children’s health was of the highest importance. She truly loved God, and made everything in her life about God, or related to Him. She loved to cook and loved serving her family through delicious meals. She sang quite often, and would be very silly with her children. She would sing and dance to wake them up, and would chose to spend quality time with them through board games and movies. If she was watching TV, it would often be the Food Network. Her favorite musical artist was Matt Maher and she would listen and sing along with him daily. Her favorite songs were “Lord, I need you” and “Here I am, Lord”. She knew she needed God’s graces, and cherished “Here I am, Lord” because her mother used to sing that song to her when she was a child. She was committed to loving her husband, and cherished taking care of his needs before her own. Even through her cancer treatments, she would make time to care for Anthony and his needs daily. Her death on Earth is felt by many, she had a great impact on so many people and she is considered an inspiration. She is now in peace in Heaven with our Lord and Savior, and was certainly greeted by her Mother Erma.
