"Elaine has left us all with a deep longing to see her beautiful smile, hear her talk like she understands our pain and joy. Her kindness and love for her mom, Odessa, gave us an example that we never forget. I think of her very often and her memory gives me strength and optimism. Thank you Elaine with love, from your "Liz"."

"Hey Nana, I miss you.  I'm glad you got to see me in my uniform before you left.  I know it made you proud.  I'm hoping I can wear a uniform again.  I remember you told me in high school there would be a day when the girls wouldn't stop calling.  I'm 25 and it still hasn't happened but I trust you.  I'm hoping your memory continues to guide me and I can still hear your laugh in my memories.  Miss you Nana.  

With love,

Dani"

"It is almost Thanksgiving and Elaine's memory did not fade as we all get together with our family members. I miss hearing Elaine's stories of her beloved family that grew to many, over the years. Elaine would be happy to know that we are thinking of her beautiful smile and wish we could share our stories with her. Love, Elizabeth and Dani."

"It is hard to believe that Elaine was not here with us for one year already. I missed her smile and sweet voice so often and now today, all the pain of the memory I experienced just  a year ago are flooding back. Elaine was a unique woman as she was both a child and an adult. She was both serious and funny and made the best Southern fried chicken. I hear your laughs and see your smiles...."

"Elaine dedicated her entire life to the well-being of her husband, parents, daugher and sons. Her selfless and good nature made a lasting impression on everyone she met. She protected and prayed for every stranger she came across. She will be remembered and dearly missed by many. In face of adversity she would smile and  say "one day at a time". Thank you Elaine for all you've done for us."
