This is another sad day, as I remember my friend Elinor.  She had such a great sense of humor, and we sure had some fun times together as young girls.

I can remember walking to Elinor's house after classes at Lombard. Her laugh is still one of my memories. Sorry to see that our class has lost another friend.
