  25. On behalf of the Shah family, this is the most difficult thing to do. I am trying to condense years of a loving relationship between us and Elaine, (Mom to my wife and me and grandma to our kids) in only a few words.
    We have known Elaine for over 43 years to be the kindest and most caring person we have met in our lives. Whenever you stopped by her home, she would always fill your belly with a nutritious meal and a good joke. Elaine was known for her quick wit, sharp tongue, “a no nonsense” person who will often “shoot straight from the hip” with her opinion which was often corrected in hindsight. She was always pleasant with the nicest smile which suited her “forever-young” appearance.
    We will miss you in every way that we will miss any of our closest relatives. Good bye and may God bless you. We may one day see you on the other side.
    Our sincere condolences Angie (sister and aunt) to you and your extended family. Remember that we all belong to God and must return to him. Love you!

  26. Angela and Sharisse
    My deepest condolences to you both and family I am so sorry for your loss, I am so shocked to hear that Elaine has left us, she was always happy and laughing.
    Cherish the fondest and warmest memories of her.
    May she rest in eternal peace at the right hand of the Lord.
    I will miss you Elaine

  27. A beautiful woman inside and outside 😍 ♥️ ❤️ . Full of laughter and fun. Selfless

  29. My very Dear Angie and Family,
