Through my friend, Morris Bailey, I had the pleasure of meeting Elsie in Austin and at her home. She was a delightful, unique and loving person with a strong artistic sensibility. During a visit to Austin, Elsie and Morris and friends made our way from the still developing entertainment district around 6th Street and headed to Congress Avenue. As I recall we had visited Rita's Cantina. On reaching Congress Avenue Elsie took off her sandals and remarked how shocked some might be at her being "barefoot on Congress Avenue.". That comment has always stayed with me as has my memory of her and her son, Morris. Unique, artistic, loving and free spirited. My deepest sympathy to the family. Danny Fowler Austin Texas

I was so sad to hear about Mrs. Bailey's passing. She was such a huge part of my childhood, always kind and laughing at all of us kids when we were goofing around. I'm so sorry for all of her family, but I believe she's with Morrie now. They have lots of catching up to do. Love, Becky Frasier
