    • Miss you!

      I was so devastated when I heard about the terrible earthquake in Christchurch. I cannot believe that you and Lia are not among us. I will always remember you and I will never forget your support in the most difficult moments of my life. You were a great person, a very professional one. Rest in peace, dear Elsa!

    • Elsa and I were in the same class at Christchurch Teachers College in 1992. I have such fond memories of Elsa and her passion for teaching. She had such a big heart and was a popular member of the class. We had a lot of laughs together - she was such a special lady. Words cannot express my sorrow for her family and friends.
      Sincere condolences from a Kiwi teacher teaching abroad.

    • Oggi ho una musica triste nel cuore,
      perche' so che non ti rivedro' piu',
      perche' penso che le persone di animo puro come te
      non meritano questa tragica fine,
      perche' non ci sono ragioni, non ci sono motivi, non c'e' una giustizia nel vivere.

      Oggi ho una musica dolce nel cuore,
      perche' so che avro' sempre un ricordo solo per te,
      perche' non bastera' il passare degli anni per offuscare la tua immagine,
      perche' penso che e' stato una fortuna poterti incontrare e vivere anche se pur un breve momento di vita con te.

      Addio Elsa.......
