When I heard of Elaine's passing,a little bit of me died as well. I so enjoyed this lovely woman's company. She and I had our little adventures as we trudged snow,ice,rain,all for the sake of her wellness. Her love of her family was the best treatment for her ills. What seems like a moment in time,has been a forever blessing. Thank you for the laughter,and now,the tears. You will be missed fiercely by all that have known you.
