“Elaine came into my life less than a year ago, but she made a wonderful friend to me at that very moment. I knew she was special. And I was right! Sadly we were parted but what little bit of time we had together was unforgettable. I know now she is our angel above looking after each of her family and I am sure she will remember all the laughs we had together. Rest in peace, Dear friend. You know I love you.”

“Sending love and prayers to you today Keith, Pam, Peggy and Shelly and your families! Her memory will live on forever in your hearts! Rest in peace Aunt Elaine”

“The family of Ed Zimmerman would like to express our condolences on the loss of Elaine. We all have our own fond memories of Zimmerman family gatherings when everyone was younger. Elaine was a treasured cousin to Ed as they both grew up and into adulthood. Time and distance had loosened the connection but she has always been thought of fondly. We hope that all of your happy memories give you comfort at this time. Ed, Sylvia and Chris Zimmerman; Jenny (Zimmerman) and Dave Morris; and Ed and Lori Zimmerman and family.”
