Not sure what to say?

I love you Aunt Elaine and will miss you.

So sorry to hear of her passing. Such a sweet lady and so was her husband. Have thought of her often, as we pass by her old DeRidder home frequently. May God provide comfort at this difficult time.

My dear sweet Aunt Elaine, I will miss you. Be at Peace.

Prayers and hugs to you all as you engage this time of loss. Have so many fond memories of this sweet lady from growing up in Shreveport. Much love to her children.

She was such a loving person I will miss her at the Reneau family reunion's where I first met her and got to know about her and her family. Till we meet again, I love you, I wish I told you that more often.

May you rest in peace and love kind Aunt Elaine. Your niece, Natalie.

So sorry to hear about Aunt Elaine. She was always so friendly and had a wonderful conversation with her last time I saw her at Bonnie's home. She loved her family very much.

Corwin, I am so sorry to hear that your mother passed. But, what a privilege that you were with her. Praying for you and your family.

Y’all were truly blessed to have such remarkable Christian parents.
