I work at M&I Bank and met Wally there. I formed a special relationship with both him and Elaine. Elaine was a wonderful, kind, gentle woman and I will miss our annual contact via Christmas cards. She was blessed with a special man to love and they are now together again. You have my deepest sympathy.

Robert, My sympathy in the loss of your mother, Elaine, I spoke to her via phone July 5th and shared my mother Nina Baehman's passing with her as mother, Nina and she visited via phone quite regularly. Mother always enjoyed talking to her and I kept the phone calls going for her. They shared their husband's passing on the same day in March 20, 1996. Just wanted to express my sincere sympathy as they both passed on relatively close as the husbands. God wanted them still together I guess. I will be in Appleton, Fri, cleaning and readying house for sale. I miss her as you will as well, they were great moms. Sincerely, Ronda Cone
