We share your loss; and our love, sympathy, and prayers are with you whose hearts are broken with ours in grief. May God be close in the days ahead to strengthen you with His presence and comfort you with precious memories of good times shared with our pretty, intelligent, spirited, and capable Elaine.

I am so sorry for the family`s loss. Lisa and I went to high school together. I just talked with her a couple of months ago by Facebook private message. She was a light to everyone she knew, fought a good fight and displayed incredible courage. May the family be at peace knowing she is now with the Lord.Anita Branch McCall

I`m sorry to read about Mrs. Whitesides. It is only natural that we will miss and yearn to see our dead love ones again. That`s why the Bible teaches that most people who have died will be resurrected. May you find comfort in Jesus` promise that "those in the memorial tombs will...come out."

Darren I am so sorry about your wife Lisa... My deepest condolences to you and your Family....In time of sadness our memories are a precious gift....with heartfelt Sympathy .Ryan Lewis Estes Expres Lines
