My Special Friend, Elaine:
I'll miss you more than you'll ever know. You always listened to me vent, and it didn't go any further. I enjoyed our outings - casino, concerts & gambling. Movies, and afterwards lunch or dinner and more conversation. I've known you for 40+ years and you've never changed. Always respectful, considerate, loving and much more. When opening up a conversation you always said "and how are you doing?" and a hug followed. Family was your top priority. You loved sharing news about the grand and great grandkids. You knew I, being a grandma, would be interested in hearing all about it. I could go on forever about you, but I will close with "you will always be in my heart and thoughts." Love ya, Connie Sue

Elaine was my friend and neighbor for the last 17 years. She was always willing to help anyone always had a kind word. She was a tireless worker She loved nothing more than her children grandchildren and husband. She loved her home and garden and her care to them was endless. She would cook and share whatever she had. She excelled at all she did . She listened first and spoke less. She would not hesitate to help anyone had a kind word for all. She will be dearly missed. There is a big gap now on the street where she once filled it with her gentle loving presence. Godspeed Elaine! you are loved and remembered always.
