Steve, Michele, Renee. I’m so sorry to hear about Elaine, I first met Elaine where my Grandma lived on Forest Green rd, we are talking about 30 some years ago. We use to talk on the phone a few times a week catching up on all the gossip, of course there were some things we disagreed with, but over all we loved talking, Elaine was like a 2nd Mum to me, I could always call her in an emergency when I lived across the street from her, most of all when my mum died, she was there always!!! I will miss so much talking to her , and her telling me how proud she was of her grand daughter softball games, she got so excited talking about her. But I will always be here to talk if needed, again, so sorry. Rev Michael Hyatt🐶🦮🐱🐯🏳️‍🌈🤗

To the family,
I was so sorry to hear of Elaine's passing. She was a wonderful friend and a great mah jongg player. I will never forgot how she came from Timonium to drive me to work for seven weeks when I broke my foot and the lunches that we had together at Red Robin and The Nautilus Diner. We spent many hours on the phone just chatting and laughing. She was so proud of her granddaughter. I also remember going together to shop for JWV lunches. What fun we had. My deepest and most heartfelt sympathy. May the good memories that you have be a comfort to you.

I will always remember celebrating our birthdays together by going to Red Robin for hamburgers and fries because Elaine could get her plain hamburger on lettuce instead of a bun and her unseasoned french fries. We always laughed and had a good time. I have a picture of us together which is in my bedroom and I think of her of her often. She was so proud of her granddaughter always.
My condolences to all of her family.
