    Hey pretty lady, I miss you so much. You were such a sweet person. You always made me smile and you always made working more fun. When I came in Sunday and heard I was so upset. I wasn't ready to tell you bye. It is not the same not being able to go down to your room and visit anytime I want to. I love you and I'll see you again one day. And everytime I see my GEICO commercial I'm going to remember the first day we met :) Love, Stephanie

    Elaine...AKA as Ma'ma, You were a true angel to me, helped me through so much in my life after we met. It was so enjoyable going to work at Wilco knowing we had the same shift. Someone who always worried and was concerned about others more than yourself. I will never forget your smile and your laugh. You made me smile when i didn't think i could. I will forever love and miss you and never, ever forget you. I love you ma'ma, Lynn

    My dear friend Elaine, I think of you every day and will especially miss you and our long talks by the water. Fishing will never be the same without you. Thank you for eveything you did for me and for always being my good friend. We'll all be gathering at the Kure Beach Pier to have an ice cream cone in your honor. I love you, Jean
