Jon, Luanna, Scott, I'm so sorry to hear about your mom. I will never forget her writing me a letter while I was in Basic Training. She always treated me like one of her own.
Ray and Lisa Duncan
Jon, Scott, Bill, LuAnn and family, Ray and I are so sad to hear the passing of Elaine. She was so dear to us when our boys was small. I don't know what we would have done without her. Ronnie and her cared for them as if they was there own. Ray and I knew they was taken care of when they was there. We will always have great memories of her and a special place in our hearts. Bless you all. Rest in peace Elaine.
