I'm so sorry to hear of Elaine's passing. She had the most beautiful yard in the neighborhood where I grew up. One time the kids in the neighborhood cut some of her flowers to give to our moms for May Day. We all got in a lot of trouble for that and were made to go apologize to her. It's a memory that is talked about often by those of us to did it. We really did have a great childhood. May she rest in peace and enjoy the beautiful gardens in heaven.
