So sorry to learn of Elaine's passing. In the few years we were neighbors I got to know her as we shared a love of flowers. She gave me many and in my whole life, never saw a woman that was such a hard worker. From morning till night she worked in her beautiful yard and gardens. She was a joy to know and a wonderful neighbor. My sympathies to Lonnie & Linda, Larry and all the family.
