Gayle and Greg and Families,

We are so very sorry and Aunt Elaine will be missed. We treasure the times we had visiting her, listening to her stories, having lunches and spending time looking at old photographs. We'll remember her for her strength, her sense of humor and her smile. We are grateful to have had her in our lives and thankful that she is now with Uncle Dick and Mrs Zip and she is in heaven standing tall and at peace. She will never be forgotten. RIP Aunt Elaine, thank you for the recipes, the moments and the laughs!!! Love you always, Karen, Jim and Brenna
