    Dear Elaine, We will miss you so much. I am the mother of one of her thirty seven grandchildren and have been blessed to know Elaine and Chad. We love Jamie ( granddaughter) and got to know Elaine and Chad from birthday parties for my grandchildren and her great grands. She treated all with great love and no doubt she did the same for all of her grands,

    So sorry I missed the wedding anniversary and I cannot make it to the funeral. Your mom was an amazing woman I always loved going to play at your house. Your family always did so many fun things together. I really appreciated Joy bringing your parents to my Dad’s funeral. I know she will be watching out for each of you, and I know how hard it is when they graduate and go to the other side of the veil. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
    Love Carrie Parker Ruiz
