    I went to school with Elaine. We graduated together. I remember how much we laughed together in chemistry class! Unfortunately, I lost track of her, as we got older, although I thought of her fondly. I would have loved to have shared those old memories with her!

    Cousin Arlene Handzel says:
    I love the picture of Elaine and I standing with arms around each other with bright smiles and in our fancy dresses at an event that I believe was in Buffalo. Probably a family wedding. Have great memories of those family visits in Buffalo and so many other events like the Fourth of July and Christmas. Bless your soul dear Elaine with a blissful peace❤️
