I just viewed the beautiful service and loving family tributes for Elaine, your sister, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, wife, cousin , sister-in-law and friend. I was very touched by all the special words that mean so much to describe a life of a very special person.

Time of course heals but all your memories help to re-live precious moments forever.

Love and peace, Gail (Cherry) Gorski

We will all miss you now and forever. We will remember all our times together from our Easter dinners, card games and our travels back home to Serpent River First Nations You were our matriarch of the family and we thank you for that.

Your time had come to leave us
And we had to say goodbye
Just like the sun sets gently down
On a quiet evening sky
I still hear the sound of your voice
As the wind blows through the trees
As though its floating on forever
Upon a gentle breeze
My eyes cant hold back the tears
Like the skies cant hold the rain
And im longing for the day to come
That we will meet again

💔 Love you always Sue💔

Mom you were very special to me
nothing can replace the love I have for you
my heart aches that you have left us
I find some comfort knowing you are no longer in pain
and in time we will meet again

❤ Your loving son ❤

Aunt Elaine was the most caring, giving and wonderful soul<3 She opened her home to me and my girls Skahota and Annie it was our first move from the SRFN.
If not for her and her kindness I don't think I would have left and have all I have achieved.
My deepest condolences to Rob and the family. From my little family to yours ... Thoughts, prayers and tight hugs
