    I am going to miss you. You are one of the strongest and bravest I have ever met.
    You loved life and your family. You were my college roommate and Gamma sister. You made life so fun. So, many great memories. Everyone should be lucky enough to have had you in thier life. The few times we got together your eyes would sparkle when you talked about Buddy and your kids. That was great to see. I love you, god bless you and your family. Gamma Girls forever. You’ve gotta friend.

    You will be missed Elaine. It was always obvious your family was your priority. Despite all you were going through, you found the strength to do what needed to be done with grace and a smile. I love you.
