Elaine was my best friend and prayer partner for over 35 years. We talked at least once a week or more if we needed prayer for someone or something or if something else came up. We would go out to eat or just meet at each other's homes until i got too busy with work, but even then, we would meet. There was nothing we could not talk about family problems, work, church. We kept each other on the straight path. I will miss her, but I will see her again. We are friends and sisters for all eternity. I know where she is and as we would always end our conversations (meet you here, there=== heaven or in the air---rapture or catching away).

Sorry for your loss. We had talked then prayed that she would go home, that her mission was finished. What time did she die Friday? She asked me to continue praying for her family. I will continue to pray for all of you until it is my time to go home. If you ever need prayer for anything just let me know.
