I certainly missed many opportunities to know my Aunt Elaine as a nephew should. I believe her last words to me were, "Do you need a hug?" Thank you for leaving me with that hug.

Johnny, Randy, Brian and Kevin,
So sorry to hear about Elaine’s home going. Lots of good memories of her and the family. I know she is rejoicing in Heaven, her and Phyllis Hildebrand probably having a good ole reunion.
I love y’all and pray for God’s comfort during this time.
