My heart goes out to my family today. My grandmother played such a huge part in so many lives. I've never known anyone else loved by so many people. I will miss her dearly and I will always cherish the memories I have of her.

Wonderful memories of a beautiful woman that loved her family. Ms. Elaine could always tell it like it was, which always brought a great chuckle to me! May God comfort all of her family that loved her and gave her great care.
