To all her family and friends, may we be comforted by these parting words. Her time has come to leave us, let us not grieve and shed tears, nor hug our sorrows through the years. Let us go forth bravely with a gallant smile and for her sake, in her name live on and do things the same. Feed not your loneliness with empty days but fill each waking hour in useful ways. Reach out your hands in comfort and cheer. Be comforted and never, never be in fear to die. May her soul sleep in eternal peace until that great getting up morning, Amen.
The family will be present to receive friends on Friday, November 16th from 10am – 11am at Highland Funeral Home, 3329 E. Semoran Blvd., Apopka FL; where funeral services will be held beginning at 11am. Elese will be laid to rest in Highland Memory Gardens, Apopka FL.
My mom and Ms. Lewis had a very special friendship. That is how I met her. Although we can never understand how God works, we just have to choose to keep on following him because that’s the only way we will all meet again.
"When we lose an Elder, we lose a library." You provided great care and love Giselle, many blessings!
