I have many fond memories of my friendship with Elaine. Her premature illness and death make me very sad. Ukiah is not the same for me without her.

It was too soon for the world to lose Elaine. I'll remember Elaine as a happy, eager and optimistic person who was never afraid to push the boundaries and to live every moment of life to the fullest. She taught me not to take life for granted and to always have a smile for everyone. She had a great infectious smile. You couldn't help but share in her joy. Elaine, we know you're in good company and with those who love you and those whom you love. I know you'll be there to greet us with your smile when it's our turn. Love, cousin Ruth

I will always keep the memories of Elaine from when her and I and her sister Kelli flagged for her other sister Sandy. Elaine and I and her two nephews David and Jessieworked alot of the graveyard shifts together. There were some long nights but filled with personal conversations and lots and lots of laughter. We all learned to believe things really do go "bump" in the night...

Much love to my dear Aunt Elaine, whom of which I loved very much. My fondest memories were when she moved to Ukiah, and I was often at her house playing as a little boy, mowing and watering her lawn, helping her decorate her new home, and always stopping by in the mornings before school started in the cafeteria to visit her. I will remember her fondly, as I always have.
