Elaine you will be truly missed. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to see you one more time in July 2013. I thank you so much for making me feel wanted and loved when we visited you at your house or the camp in Ursa. You were such a wonderful cook, I will always remember the beebe pellite I had the good fortune of getting when Forrest hunted a rabbit and you cooked at the camp. You always had a smile and you were always laughing, I thank God I was blessed that you came into my life. You will be truly missed. Cecil you were so blessed to have a mother like Elaine. Cathy you had the good fortune of having a Mother-in-Law as wonderful as Elaine was. Chris, Chad and Chuck you were so lucky and blessed to have a Grandmother as sweet as Elaine was. God Bless all of you. Linda Hayes

To Elaine's family. I'm so sorry for the loss of your mother. She was such a sweet, kind, and wonderful person. There is nothing like a mother. She had a great input in helping me compile the McNay book with photo's etc. My sister Sharon is in Florida and I am unable to attend the visitation or the funeral, but I wanted to express my deepest sympathy.
