    Sharing your sorrow in the loss of your loved one. We always had so much fun together when Elaine, Stanley and Bob came to visit us in CT and when we visited there in Hendersonville. She always had such a positive attitude. We will always cherish the memories. Love and peace to you all.

    My heart is heavy with the loss of this beautiful soul. I met her when I cared for her mother at Cherry Springs. She will be sorely missed but Heaven is much brighter

    Elaine will be greatly missed on this earth but I know she is happier than she has been in a while now as she strolls the streets of heaven holding hands with her beloved Stanley. Our prayers are with the family as we pray for God's comfort at this time.

    I just met Elaine back in September and became friends. She was a big part of a support group for our family during the last several months. I will always remember enjoying her cakes this past Christmas Season. I shared them as far as five hours away!

    I'm stunned at Elaine's passing, such a loss for the Curb Market and for all the family and friends who love and appreciate her caring and fun personality. Her life blessed others in a mighty way, and she'll be sorely missed. Prayers for the family as you take comfort knowing she's with her dear husband in the presence of our wonderful Lord Jesus.
