Not sure what to say?

Ashley and family,

I was blessed to work with Elaine at NASA. She was always so positive and I could count on getting one of the biggest and best smiles of anyone I knew whenever I needed it. I know that no words can help the sorrow you are feeling, but I pray for God's comfort for your family.

So very sad to hear of Elaine's passing. I worked with her at NASA HQ and NASA Langley. I could always count on her to be a bright spot in my day with her wonderful smile and since of humor. My prayers and thoughts go to Ashley and the family.

Dear Ashley and family. So very sorry to hear of Elaine's passing. We were coworkers in the same branch when she worked at NASA Langley. There was never a dull moment with Elaine around. She had an incredible sense of humor. It has been quite awhile since I last saw her, but she is someone who is hard to forget. God bless your family during this very difficult time. Most Sincerely, C. Lynn Jenkins, NASA LaRC

She will be greatly missed. My prayers of comfort go...

So sad for the loss of your mother, sister aunt and friend. I was blessed to call her my friend even for a short while. Prayers for her family as they move forward with their loss.
