    Elaine,
    I have been watching the movie, Marley and remembering the time I took you to see it at 100 Oaks. We had a good night together. I remember your infectious laugh and remember how we could laugh together about silly things our boys would do. It seems to us that your life was cut too short, but I know you are in a much better place than we are and I know as well as anyone how much you sufferred those five years. I am so sorry you had to go through what you did, but everything down here happens to us for a reason and I know you understand that now. I wish I could have been with you when you left us and wish your whole family could have been around you to say, “Good-bye”. All of us have an appointed time to go and it was just your time to go. I miss you and even though you and I had some difficult times, I know that you love me and I love you. I know you know that also.

    I will always miss how excited you would get over my dressing and the family dinners we used to have. I remember the time we had the brownies with ice cream and home made chocolate sauce. I can still see you in my kitchen enjoying it. They were never the same after Oakley left us and we probably will never have them again now that you have left us also. Honey, you were a beautiful woman with a lot of love in your heart. You had a lot of difficult things in your life to deal with and I truly hope you are at peace now and with my son. Please hold him for me and love him until I get there. I never would have thought you would be there before me.

    I miss you very much.

    Love always,
    sheryl
