Dear Bonacci Family, Our deepest condolences go out to you in this painful and difficult time. Just know that Elaine was a beautiful woman who meant a lot to not only our family (the Brickners), but to this whole community (Plain City, St. Josephs), and for that matter every community she touched (Monroe school, Cum Christo). As my wife put it to me, Heaven just got one more angel. May peace and joy come upon you as you realize Elaine is home with Jesus. Love to you all, The Brickners (Mike, Denise, Ally, Griff, and Matt)

Deepest sympathies to the family. Elaine was my son’s 4th grade teacher, her last 1/2 year of teaching at Monroe. She was so kind and caring, especially because he had learning disabilities. Our family will never forget her kindness. She definitely was called to be a teacher. We are better people for having known her. Love and prayers , Laura Phipps
