I remember spending many New Years Eve with Alex and every year, at Midnight, she would call her mother and we would all yell Happy New Year.

Alexandria I am so sorry for your loss! I have a lot of fond memories working with your Mom.
Elaine always brought her lunch and kept it in the refrigerator. We use to have training classes every Thursday in the office, so one Thursday she whispers for me to come in the kitchen. She opens the fridge and said one of them ate my lunch. I said what? She laughed and said I hope they enjoyed it because it was a really good sandwich! 🤣 I immediately put up a sign that said office staff only. She could always make you smile and laugh! She was a vibrant, friendly and caring person she will be missed!!!

Elaine was my administrative assistance for many years. She was not only my coworker but my right hand! She was my friend, confidant, and second mother. Elaine always watched our for me. We would sit in the office and talk. She was amazing. She would tell me what to make for my next dinner party, what ballet to see, what movie to see, where to go to brunch and the list goes on. Elaine was full of life and loved life! She had the best weekend plans!
Elaine was always impeccable
From hair to makeup to clothes. Always perfect attention to detail.
Elaine will be forever missed. She was with me through my engagement, wedding and 2 children. She was always happy and always happy for those around her. I loved Elaine with all my heart and she will always have a special place there.
She was beautiful inside and out.

Alexandria, thank you for always keeping me posted on her status. You know how much she means to me. She always spoke so highly of you!!!!! She told me I was so lucky to have a girl as you always took care of her and were there for her. Her eyes always lit up when she spoke of you.
You are in my prayers through this tough time. I know how much your mom meant to you too.

Heaven has a beautiful angel. May Elaine watch over us and Rest In Peace. she is forever in my prayers. I am a better person for having the pleasure of meeting her and having her in my life
