  1. Today Jan. 17th, 2015 I lost my best friend, I knew her better than a lot of you, she was hard as nails at times and then gentle as new born lamb. I will miss her very much and in my heart, I know she loved all her children , she talked about them all to me the good and the bad, like us all we say and do things that we are sorry for later. Lets not be sorry for some little thing that isn’t worth the powder to blow it to —-. I know her well enough to know that she is looking down on me and saying, “Love you honey and see you later and thank you ” May God Bless and comfort you all at this time. Love always your mothers best friend, Elaine
