Elaine was a good hard working lady. She always had a big hug for me and my husband whenever she seen us. She always came to the Farmers Markets and purchased vegetables from us. She had a big heart, when my son passed away, she made a huge kettle of Chicken and Noodles and brought to our home. It was sure appreciated and it was delicious. Thank you Elaine, will miss you.

Elaine was a wonderful Aunt to me we had a very close Bond she wanted so bad to get to Georgia to see me and live with me but that just never worked out her health would not allow it. I am grateful for the many video calls we were able to have and the wonderful memories that we made together. I miss her terribly. I was like her daughter. I feel your presence Aunt Elaine.
