My first born, I pray I showed you how much I loved you. Not sure what to do now we talked of our vacation places. I looked forward to cooking your favorite foods. I want you to dance in the universe

Elaine N. Cradle Was One Extremely Intelligent, Delightful, Strong, Beautiful And Very Lovely Young Lady Who I Had The Honor Of Dating Off And On Within Her Life.

We Both Met Doing Something The Two Of Us Had In Common And Loved Doing With A Very Deep Passion And That's "DANCING".Β 

Elaine Truly Had An Undeniable Spark And A Regal Presence Once This Queen Entered A Room, The Dance Floor Indoors Or At An Outside Event You'd Know She Was There With Her Signature Afro -Aka- Her Crown.Β 

She WasΒ A Quiet Storm That Could Dance Non-Stop We're Both Similar To "The Energizer Bunny" Because When We'd Danced Together We Would Just Keep Going And Going And Going...

As I Said Earlier Elaine Was An Extremely Intelligent Woman And Having A Conversation Or Texting Her You'd Definitely Leave Feeling Smarter Because She Made Your Mind Sharper When Speaking To Her She Brought Up To Her Gold Standard.Β 

Lastly, Eliane Was A Very Down To Earth Person With A Wonderful Sense Of Fashion, Humor, An Undeniably Unique Laugh And Once She Let You Into Her Personal Space You Truly Felt The Warmth From Her Entire Heart, Soul And Being If You Where Near Her Or Far Away Afterwards You Could Still Feel It And That Was Her "Black Girl Magic" To Me.Β 

Until We Meet Again My Dear Sweet Friend And "Dancing Queen" You Are Never To Be Forgotten But Farewell For Now Elaine...

With My Love & Eternal RespectΒ
