    Dead Emily, Mrs. McDonald & the complete McDonald family, My thoughts & prayers are with you all at this time of sadness. Every time I chatted with Elaine she always talked so highly of her daughter Emily & how much she loved her. She was so proud of you Emily! So proud……. She was also so saddened that because of the Covid pandemic she was unable to give her mother & her daughter hugs…….. , she prayed for the day that she could do that again.
    May the beautiful memories that you shared with Elaine be etched into your hearts forever. Elaine truly was a very special lady that always had such a huge heart for everyone around her. I will miss her! May she finally be pain free & in the arms of OUR LORD.
    Until we meet again……REST In PEACE ELAINE!

    Emily,
    There is so much about your mom that I didn’t know until I read this. Now I know even more where your big heart came from…it is from your beautiful and special mama. She loved you and it showed that you loved her with everything in you. Praying for you, my friend.
    Love, Jamie Lane

    It was a great pleasure of mine to know Elaine for many years. I always looked forward to seeing her and her mother and sister Mary at Mass. I was in touch with her very frequently on Facebook. I’ll miss her words of encouragement and her instant messages. Rest In peace you dear, sweet, loving, kind soul. You will be missed.
