I am so sorry to hear of Elaine's passing. I worked with Elaine many years ago at Consumers Life Insurance Company. She was always a kind and caring person. I pray that your wonderful memories of Elaine will ease the pain of her loss.

It was a shock yesterday when my mother called me and said that Elaine had passed. We shared time together on a few dates while we were in college and then again in 2004 when I stopped by the home on Keller street. We talked more then than we did at any other point in our lives. God be with the family as they mourn the loss of this dear sweet person. With all my love, Bob

Elaine, I will miss you. Your love of people and of life, your concern for them, and your upbeat courage as cancer destroyed your future -- you leave a model for how to live that I will cherish.

Lots of fond childhood memories with my cousin and her family.

Thank you Heidi for taking such good care of Elaine during this past year. Only wish that I lived closer so that I could have visited Elaine during her last year with us.
