Love and Hugs to you Donna and the rest of the Family.

Donna, you know my heart is with you Sis. It's never expected to survive a child and I know your pain cannot be imagined.

Elaine, I remember fondly the years that you and Marlise came to visit me on summer breaks... How I cried just thinking that something might happen to the plane and you two beautiful children, traveling alone, would not have your loved ones there to comfort you.

Just that thought of losing you would bring me to tears.

We love you Elaine and will keep you in our hearts forever. I know life gave you challenges that seemed unfair. You have peace now.

Forever Your Aunt Cheryl

 My Deepest Sympathy for your lose.
 The family is is my Paryers.

You were a beautiful woman and I was so glad to have met you, you had a heart of gold. When you smiled you lit up the whole room and put a smile on everyone's face. You will be truly missed and never forgotten. I know that you are looking down on us and watching over us. We love you Elaine, see you soon.
