Oh the memories!!
I have know Elin all my life, as she was my Godmother! The memories I have of Auntie Elin are ones I will treasure. Camping on Sandy Neck Beach, our trip to Disney, and Summer visits on Cape Cod!
One thing we knew for sure was if you "popped" in for a visit, we were staying for dinner as she always had enough food. She would throw together a full spread with a smile on her face. She loved cooking and we all loved eating her cooking. Her seafood chowder was one of the best I have ever had. Homemade breads, cookies, and desserts, something was always in the oven!
Auntie Elin, you will be missed dearly and we will think of you often as we walk along the beach!
Love You Always,
Michelle, Scott, Ty and Dylan

Memories abound! As children our families went on a Disney trip and many camping trips. Eric and I rode in the sleeper of the truck camper overlooking the cab while on traveling to our destination.

Cape visits and beach fun!

Oh, and the food! Auntie Elin’s Swedish Meatballs were probably my favorite.

I’ve known you my entire life. While not connected through blood, you’ve always been Auntie Elin, Uncle Bruce and Cousin Eric. Family.

Love you. Mark
