  5. Jennifer Buchanan née Moresi. says:

    Aunty Elaine has always been such a beautiful family member to the Moresi Family.
    She cared for Grandma Irene and Aunty to Trev and a beautiful Great Aunty to Jennifer. So privileged to have cared for her for a short time, as she had cared from my babies.
    To Anne and Bruce and family who have always been in our lives. You both cared for her with all your hearts.
    A beautiful lady who touched my life and now with her God and Dear Uncle Harry.
