I will always remember my Aunt Elaine as the loving wife of Uncle Francis (Finn) who together raised an awesome family with 8 children who were all well fed, clothed, raised, and educated. That they were only seperated twice, with his WW II service in England, and again with his passing in 2012 after nearly 70 years would even make Robert Frost proud.

I remember the inexhaustible energy had, even when over 90 still hanging
laundry and taking walks with her family who she would and did do everything for without complaint.

Love. Loyalty, and Family describe her Best. I am going to put on a Chris Botti cd before listening to Judy Garland sing " Over the Rainbow " as I recall her love of musi
...c and playing her piano with her children.

I was blessed to have them as. part of my family as Godparents. Now we only hope to see them together at the table prepared for them.
