Dear Gene, Craig and Kim, Nancy and Burt, and extended family,

We are sorry to hear of the passing of your wife; mom, mother in law, grandmother and great grandmother. Many memories flood our hearts of the past, sharing moments together with our families. Know that you are all in our thoughts and will keep you in our prayers. Because of these times of uncertainty, we are robbed of so many normal activities and procedures, we aren’t able to give our condolences and support in person as we wish we could. Thankful as a family you have each other to grieve and support the different emotions you all feel. Soon and very soon, we are going to see The King, and our loved ones who have gone before us. What a day that will be!

In Sympathy and Love,
Rick and Laura Rot

Elaine and Gene were long-time members of our OASIS support group. Even though Elaine experiences severe vision loss, she ALWAYS had a smile on her face as she entered the door of our meeting room. Elaine taught us all how to walk by faith, not by sight. We will all miss Elaine but she will always be in our hearts.
