I first met Elaine back in 2nd grade at St. Joseph's in Maplewood. She always wore the prettiest dresses on 'dress-down' days!! We were close friends then and I remember how lovely her parents were when I would go over her house. By the time I returned back to Union (8th grade), we were pretty much strangers and the friendship was just a childhood memory. Around 1996, I went to visit a friend that turned out to live next door to her childhood home and they told me the sad news. I was told that she was having difficulties with life and that she died of an overdose. Elaine, Rest in Peace. I will always remember you as the little girl with the prettiest dresses!
