  1. Dear Parker Family,
    We were so sorry and shocked to hear of Elaine’s death. She was a wonderful friend who will we always remember as being loving and joyful all the time. She was a very special woman. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and all your family. We are sure that you know she is in Heaven rejoicing with those gone on before us. Our only consolation is that we know we will all see her again when we get to meet our loving Saviour. May God bless, comfort and give you strength. If we can do anything at all, please let us know. We love you all very much.
