Our family picnic, held in NJ, was how I came to know Elaine (Lainie) and figure out our family connections; we made fast friends. I was sorry to hear of her passing. My condolences to all her family and especially to her daughter, Jen.

Dear Jennifer,
I'm so glad that I had to opportunity to come and visit with Elaine on Thursday.
Enjoyed seeing you and Lori also. Elaine and I were like Lucy and Ethel.Even if we had not talked in awhile, we would call and start our conversation right where we stopped. We had great times together, some sad times together, and plenty of wonderful times together. Chip and I will really miss your Mom and ofcourse your Dad. We are thinking about you having all of this on your shoulders to do. If there is anything I can come over and help you with please call me. Peace be with you and now Elaine and Jimmy are together, and are a peace.
Love Susan & Chip

My deepest sympathies go out to your family.I had only known Mrs Freda for a short time and in that time I had grown to admire her. She was a very strong woman and I will miss visiting with her. I count it a blessing to have met her.(Maid pro service provider)
