  • Anita Henzler I am so sorry that I won't be able to talk with you anymore. You were truly a dear friend and will never be forgotten. We had some great memories together. You know you will never be gone. 'Cause every time I see a butterfly I will say, "Hi Elaine, how's heaven?" Every time I pick up a rosary, I will know that you are praying the daily Rosary. You will never be gone, good friend. Every time I see purple, I will say, "That was Elaine's favorite color. You are no longer suffering and now you are playing Bingo with the angels. I hope you win a lot of games. I love you dearly. God bless you and may He keep you safe.
