    Waid, Kirt, and families,
    Elaine was one of my dearest friends. A beautiful lady with a beautiful love for others. We played many golf games together. I loved her and loved Bob. Now they are together. My prayers are with all of you in the days ahead. I know she loved her children and was very proud to be your Mom and grandmother to Lauren. Heaven gained a beautiful soul.
