  9. Dear Barry, Aimee and Robyn:

    My thoughts are with you. I had the privilege of knowing Elaine since the early 80’s, first as a library patron and then as a colleague at the library. When I think of Elaine, the word “lady” comes to mind — she was always gracious and kind in the midst of both happiness and tragedy, both hers and others. She had a kind word and a good laugh for everyone. She leaves an empty space, but the world is better for her having been in it.
