"There are no words to express the loss of Elena. She will be missed greatly and remembered always. I worked with her at Pinecrest for the last couple years and not only was she part of my work family, she was my friend. I am so very sorry for the tragic loss your family is living through; it is never easy losing a loved family member. May you find peace and love with one another. Again, my sincerest condolences."
