I will never forget the fun times on the lake, the beautiful sunsets, the games, the Turkey Dinners and the LOVE, yes the LOVE that Aunty Elaine had for everyone of us in her family. You will be missed,you will be talked about so much as you already are! The story’s that we are all going to share are going to make us laugh and make us cry, but they will also help us get by. You left us with so many wonderful memories. We all know how much you loved us in your own special way! Rest in Peace Aunty….We love you and We will miss you! You were like our other mother, but we could get away with a little more from you!
Thinking of you all, praying for comfort and love at this hard time.
Love Rick and Wendi Malinsky ( Kieler)
