Danny,

I am so sorry to hear about Elaine. The two of you were always a great couple. Elaine was always a good friend to me. I just wanted to let you know that I still remember her. She was too young to leave her friends and her family . I offer you and the rest of the family my deepest sympathies.

This is a sad time. My heart goes out to you and Steven. As one of Steven’s former teachers, it was clear to me that Elaine was a loving involved mom, who cared very much about family, and her child’s education. She must have been extremely proud of Steven’s accomplishments. I am thankful you had the good Christmas you wanted, and were able to laugh together. My thoughts and prayers are with you. God bless.
