    I only know Elaine for a few months, but in that short time I could tell she was a good person. she lived her life to the fullest and I bet she was the type of person that would give you the shirt off her back. It was my pleasure to know such a lady like Elaine. I will love her always. Dee Willis, Autumn Care or Myrtle Grove
