    I have missed Elaine as my neighbor for many years! I moved in right after Wiley passed but through out many talks in our yards I felt like he was very much alive in her. She was my partner in our Battle of the SweetGum Balls! She had two trees and loved the shade from them but not the mess. She always felt so bad that they fell in my yard and drive and was always out raking them.
    I am so sorry for your loss. She was such an amazing spirit.
