Elaine was the woman described in Proverbs 31…the woman of noble character. She was dearly loved and will be missed by all. We are thankful to have known her and thankful that we will see her again. Praise God!
I am sorry to hear of Elaine’s leaving us, but rejoicing that she is FINALLY HOME. I worked with her at Nationwide and she was a joy to work with. When God takes a loved one Home, He leaves us with precious memories and we keep those memories in our hearts until we see our loved one “in the morning.”
Another angel in Gods great Heaven. So sorry for your loss.
Yvette so very sorry for the loss of your Mom.
If there is anything Tunie and I can do please let us know
I would like to express condolences in the loss of your dear loved one. Also share some hope of you seeing them again in the promised resurrection to come according to these scriptures [John 5:28-29] and [Acts 24:15]. We find further hope in [Isaiah 25:8] and [Revelations 21:3-5] which says in part that Jehovah God will wipe out every tear from our eyes and death will be no more, because God will swallow up death forever. I hope these scriptures will be of some comfort.
With Deep Sympathy.
Mrs. Elaine is a dear woman of God who had encouraged me many times! She and I served together in Haiti doing missions and she loved telling others about Jesus. I am thankful for her life and for the opportunity to know her. She has served Jesus well! I am praying for God’s comfort for her family and friends!
Gerald, I am sorry about Elaine.
Yvette and family, so sorry for your loss. Loved Ms. Elaine in Acteens and serving with her in Disaster Relief. May the Lord comfort you during this time. Love, Cindy Blalock Honeycutt
