Memories Timeline


  1. Ernie, I lost contact with Elena several years ago–she told me by phone that she was moving north to stay with you and your wife. She was a sweet person and loved you very much. I still have home movies of us playing together on 6th Street. So sorry to hear of her passing.

  2. I remember growing up with Elena because I lived around the corner from her. We were childhood friends attended the same schools (Rosteet Lake Charles High). She was even in my 1st grade class I have our class picture. She was always a very sweet kind person.
