I was really sorry to hear that Elaine had passed away. I worked with Elaine at the Hotel cafe for a time and she made sure I learned how to do the job and it was done right. My condolences and prayers to all the family at a really difficult time. Losing anyone close to you is hard but losing a parent is truly heartbreaking and life changing.
