My dear sweet friend, Elaine, has been a client of mine since 1996. We have shared many ups and downs together. I have always been treated as if I were a family member with her. It takes a special person to be a hairstylist, but to be a hairstylist and have another hairstylist come to you as a client, really makes you feel good about yourself. I have known Elaine all my life, but I really didn't get to know her until we started sharing appointment time together. We really hit it off well, we always have, well... most of the time... when we didn't, we always shared each other's views, and either agreed or respected the disagreement. My sweet friend I love you so much, you have touched my heart and soul, I will miss seeing you every week. Friday will never be the same again. Until we meet again, rest in peace Elaine... your faithful friend and hairstylist, Blake

I am trying to create a memory. My mother was raised in Donaldsonville and when to school there.
My parents are buried in the Mausoleum. Helen and Wilbert. The Sunshine bridge is on some of my mothers property.
CJ Leblanc called his sister to see if she might have known Miss Elaine and he found out that his sisters husband Will Ray Berot had been in classes with her sister.

Summer memories of shared times spent in Donaldsonville with Elaine & family members when we were young. I spent many summers there and was welcomed by my Aunt Josie into their home. They were all very special to me.

My sympathy to all those near and dear to Elaine. She will be missed greatly. She will always hold a special place in my heart.

Heartfelt sympathy and Love.
