Allow the many wonderful memories Aunt Elaine has created with you to be a source of comfort through this difficult time. I used always love all the family get togethers. They are a source of comfort now. She was a special lady. Even though I haven't been around, I am also grieving with you. As sick as she was three years ago, she struggled to my father's funeral. I am so sorry she is gone.
