    David, we just learned this week the very sad news of Elaine’s passing.
    Jim feels especially apologetic for not knowing or attending her service.
    Elaine was so likeable and memorable with her big smile and BIG laugh.
    Her caring way, sincere kindness, fun loving and long list of domestic talents will always be remembered by us.
    Just a pleasure to know both of you.
    Our sincere condolences to you and a hug, Ruth + Jim

    David, both Sue and I were shocked and saddened to learn of Elaine’s passing. She was such a nice lady and of course a wonderful soul mate. Sue has many fond memories from Elaine’s “Porter family” days. Out thoughts are with you and we wish you all the best during this most difficult time.
    Please accept our most sincere condolences.

    Warm regards, Alf and Sue

    David:

    How does one accept the loss of a life partner? You don’t but you continue to exist and cherish the love and life that was shared. The reality of the loss will not seem real at times while at other times it will weigh you down in sorrow. You will never forget and in that way, Elaine will live on in the hearts of those with shared memories. Take care and God bless.

    David, Elaine was like a big sister to me. We had a lot in common in our journey with cancer but also we share a love of gardening, baking and my mom’s pickled beets. I had warned Elaine about my mother that the beets would just keep coming and they did..

    We really understood each other and she was a big support. I will never forget her kindness and her never give up attitude. She always had words of encouragement. In tough times.

    Deepest sympathies to you and your family and the DeMont’s.

    David, I was saddened to learn of Elaine’s passing this week. I had worked with Elaine, as a client when she was at RBC and then as a colleague at CMHC. I have fond memories of us sitting and chatting about ” old times in the mortgage industry” or just about life in general. She was a wonderful lady who always had a smile on her face and a positive attitude.
    My thoughts are with you and your family at this difficult time.

    Hi David: Sorry to hear about Elaine. The girls were such a three some and that is how I knew Elaine through Mary when she worked in my office – they were really good friends forever. I am sure you will have their friendship going forward. Just thinking of all of you during this difficult time.
