Elsie May Johnson Travis, 77, of Montour Falls, NY, passed away on Thursday, February 4, 2021.
It was your time, God called you home. Our hearts weren't ready, there was no farewell goodbyes given. It breaks our heart (your children) we're gonna cry….for we lost our mom! We have to let go of our mom, allow you mom to get to the other side. It'll break us kids down, like fallen to see you fly now with your wings. Sad…each of us left behind, we will have to learn to move on with our lives without you. Sad, hurt and tears…moving on with rest of our lives starts with goodbye.
