Ted Fishman

My sincere condolences on the loss of your mother.

Leslie Wilner

Sincere condolences to the family. Elaine was a wonderful person.

Sal and Henry Goldenstein

Elaine was not only beautiful, smart, sweet (not enough room here, I could go on and on) but she was also a stitch. I'll never forget when she and Marla were at my house preparing for an evening of sushi, we didn't think we had enough food and we were all cracking jokes and laughing so much that night, our stomachs hurt. Elaine brought joy to the countless lives she touched, including mine. Sending all of you our love and strength during this time. Elaine will profoundly be missed by many. May her beautiful memory always be a blessing.

Marilyn Friedman

Elaine will be missed by many but always remembered. Sorry for your loss
