    We wanted to share a note with your family to let you know how truly Elaine will be missed. We both spent our high school years with Elaine working in the office. I never knew her personally but worked as an aide in the office along side her. She was always happy and forgiving. I say forgiving because on the days I was late or the times when I craved Hardee’s for lunch, she would always write me a pass back to class without asking too many questions. We wanted to say thank you, thank you for never reporting us to our parents which would in turn have lead to further repercussions. She taught us life lessons without us even knowing it. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
    Kari and Nate
