I am sure going to miss that lady.. Between the two of us, we could give each other a hard time.. She was the best damn cocunut pie maker around..Every time i seen her i would give her a hard time about me and love of her pies..Elaine was one hard working woman, and nothing would slow her down if she was on a mission.. God is getting a great person now, and i am sure going to miss her!
