My deepest condolences to the Martinez family. Elsie and I were best friends while at Martin High School. We were band members. I have so many memories of her. Elsie, You had a beautiful heart and loved your laughter. Thank you for the countless band trips and practice hours that we spent together. May the Perpetual light shine upon you. It saddens me that we didn't keep in touch throughout the years but I understand. I'll never forget you and know that we'll see each other again one day. Prayers for your family aduring this time of sorrow. RIP Amiga. Once a Tiger, Always a Tiger. Class of "1981"
