I went to Elaine's wake last night and the funeral home was packed as I knew it would be. A DVD was playing and Elaine was playing the piano and singing. It nearly broke my heart as I remembered how she played at the hospital. There were so many pictures of Elaine with her family. I didn't see one picture that showed her alone, she always had family around her. There was one picture that showed her wearing a big hat with a very big bow and a pair of very heavy shoes, it must have been taken in the early forties when that style was the fad...I bet she was the "cat's meow"!
Elaine has touched my heart in a very special way...I will never forget her.
