Florence Elsie Britt passed away peacefully on 6th January 2015.

A loving mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Elsie was a strong and inspiring woman. A force to be reckoned with, even at 84 she was as fierce and fantastic as ever.

Her last Christmas was a wonderful one, spent visiting family and friends all around the country.

In her death, Elsie wished that donations would be made to the Royal British Legion as the armed forces were very important to both her and grandad. It would mean the world to her for you to give what you can.

when god lets my body be
From each brave eye shall sprout a tree fruit that dangles therefrom
the purpled world will dance upon
Between my lips which did sing
a rose shall beget the spring
that maidens whom passion wastes
will lay between their little breasts
My strong fingers beneath the snow
Into strenuous birds shall go
my love walking in the grass
their wings will touch with her face
and all the while shall my heart be
With the bulge and nuzzle of the sea
- e.e. cummings

Goodbye and god bless Elsie. We miss you and hope one day to see you again.

Dearest Grandma,

Sorry this has taken so long: we had a bit of a shocker at the start of the year didn't we?

You're not forgotten though and never will be. You, like mum, were an utterly legend and we're a family bereft of your wisdom, fair mindedness and humility.

Love Em and Andy
