I had the honor of working with this amazing lady, ( Physical Therapy, Home Health Care), last year and this September.
She was an inspiring and fun person.

I’m sure Elaine is at Charlie’s side right now just as she was during life. I’m also sure both of them are looking down on the family and sending their love to all of you.
