    Dear Henry & Family; Elaine was and is a good friend in the Lord. Today was a day of celebration of her life. I trust you received the note "God's Story through Elaine's Heart" I wrote for you folks. Just one type o I wrote on the Last line it should read " Isn't it Exciting" My apologies folks for this. Elaine always said this expression to me with a smile a mile wide! She will be missed but not forgotten.
    Respectfully, Mrs. Catherine Rice

    Henry & family,
    At Meadowbrook Estates we have a "Happy Hour Pot Luck Dinner" each Friday & Elaine loved to ring the bell calling all to dinner. I often think of the Christmas movie "It's a Wonderful Life" and the quote, "Each time a bell rings an angel gets its wings". Elaine has her wings. She was a true friend and neighbour. Sadly missed by all who knew her at the complex.

    So sorry to hear about Mrs.Dirksen. She was a great lady. I had fun with her and Mr.Dirksen at church helping set up for the course we had once a week. I remember when she had a few of us girls that she thought needed a bit more help over and they had dinner for us and some gifts and all around good time. Mr. Dirksen you were my teacher at Glenmore elementary.
    Sincerely
