Frank & Nancy - I am so very sorry for your loss, I will always have fond memories of Elaine, she was a joy as far back as I can remember. I still remember the stories that she and Mom would tell of working at the telephone company while sitting in the kitchen at your mom's having a snack. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
