I am devastated by the sudden and unexpected loss of Elaine. What a beautiful and bright shining light she was. She had a smile that could light up a room and she was always smiling, and always had a kind word. She was so well-loved by my whole family. She knew all the kids and grandkids in the Taraskiewicz family, and always greeted us warmly. I loved how she crocheted gifts for the whole extended Ahern family each Christmas. I loved her passion and her warmth and her kindness. She had that sweet spirit that her parents had, and she especially had that bright smile like her mom did. I will truly truly miss her and I wish I could have hugged her one last time and really let her know how much she was loved. Sending love to Wes and Diane, Tim and Nancy, Terry and Cindy, and Bill, and all of their kids and grandkids.
