Charles & family: I am sorry to hear of Elaine's passing. She was a wonderful and compassionate lady. She was a good role model for Kimberly. Kimberly would ride her bike up to your house, and Elaine would always talk with her and give her a drink and cookies. I have always loved and respected Elaine. Will not forget the times I shared with her. She also stayed in communication with me after I moved. That blessed me to know I was still in her thoughts and prayers. May God give you peace and comfort in the days to come.
