    My deepest condolences to Elaine’s family.
    She was highly respected and sincerely loved at Mission Hospital and Mission Basilica.
    When we greeted each other, it was with both our first and middle name:
    “Hello Elaine Doris”, well hello to you, Doris Elaine”.
    She has joined the Church Triumphant and all the saints in Heaven. In God’s mercy may He give her safe lodging, holy rest, and peace at last.
