    Sean & family,
    Sending my condolences & love to you all. I never had the chance to meet Elana but I met a lot of her hand made friends (Sock dolls). The detail & love she put into these dolls spoke volumes to me about the kind of heart she has.
    All the best,

    Sean and Family ,
    I met Elana at William Reid school many years ago . We used to have picnics at lunch with the kids ( her meals were always far better than mine ) . As our kids went our separate ways we did not see each other often but I loved bumping in to her on occasion. Wether it be in a park walking on a sunny day or buying her delicious brownies. She had such a beautiful outlook on life and such a warm smile that could light up a room .
    I am so sorry for you and your children .

    I met Elana in Fukuoka when we were both on the JET programme in our early 20s. Although we never kept in touch, I am deeply saddened to hear of her passing. Elana was a beautiful person who touched many lives including mine. She was a joy to be around and she lived her life to the full. I am truly sad for your loss and the loss to your community. Please accept my deepest sympathy. Sonja

    I met Elana in Fukuoka in 1988 when she joined the JET Programme. We were work colleagues and she brought a lot of light and laughter into the office!

    I last saw her in 1998 in Calgary when she was pregnant with her second child. She loved being a wife and a mom! She seemed very happy.

    We did not keep in contact. I am so sorry to hear of Elana’s illness and passing. I wish her family, friends and community love, comfort and support while coming to terms with her loss. Please accept my deepest sympathies.

    Dear Nancy & family,

    I have just learned about Elena. She was a dear friend of my brother Mark Johnson. She was so delightful, as a high student; up till the last time I saw her in Calgary in 2012.

    I am heartbroken for your loss. Nancy, I would love to reconnect with you.
