"Elaine and I were two of the "fab four" in high school along with Paula and Diane.  We laughed and teased our way through our junior and senior years when Elaine picked us up each morning.  I have the most wonderful memories of Elaine's endearing smile and twinkling eyes.  She was honestly one of the "cutiest" people I have ever known.  My heart felt sympathies to her beloved."
