Angel by Sarah McLachlan
"In the arms of the angel
Fly away from here
From this dark, cold, hotel room
And the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage
Of your silent reverie
You're in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here"

We had a lot of good memories over many years with Elaine. She was the sweetest person you would ever meet, lots of fun, always liked a good party and loved to play tricks on people with her Bubba teeth and was loved by everyone who knew her. She is missed by all who knew and loved her. Her pride and joy was her daughter, grandchildren, great grandchildren and her 11 y o schnauzer Smoke. We love and miss you Elaine. Rest in Heaven Sweet Lady.
