  3. “There is no pain so great as the memory of joy in present grief- Aeschylus (525 B.C.-456 B.C.)”. Although I didn’t know Elaine I am friends with the Norgaard family. Donna has told me about her brave and loving sister Elaine and what she and her family have experienced over the past years. I pray God will watch over all of you during these difficult times. Here is something that has helped me: “we are not human beings on a spiritual journey, rather, spititual beings on a human journey”. We will all meet again.

  4. The world will be a sadder place with Elaine’s passing. She never failed to tell me how much she loved me and never to failed to ask how Thom was doing. I have always admired her ability to send me a card for my birthday, my anniversary or to remember any occasion. She was the kindest most caring and strongest woman. I will miss her. Please accept our deepest sympathies. Love always,

  6. During her life, Elaine’s virtue and strong, resilient and beautiful nature enabled all who knew her to see “the face of our Blessed Mother.” May the Holy Family console and bless Bill, Janine, Darryl and Patrick and all who loved Elaine, who so marvellously reflected the love and goodness of God during her life on Earth.

  9. Our deepest sympathies. Words cannot describe the loss in the Hazlitt’s family. Elaine was such a kind and gentle woman. I’m always impressed that she took the time to learn how to communicate with our deaf family. She always has her family as her precious treasure. I’ve always enjoyed reading her letters every Christmas time. We will miss her sweet presence.

  11. Words cannot express the undying gratitude we have for your selfless years of love and dedication to your family, to your friends, and to God. You truly were an amazing mother and friend. We miss you so much. We love you with all of our hearts. Rest in peace Nanny.

    Oh God, Who has commanded us to honour our mother and father, have compassion in Thy mercy, on the soul of my mother, forgive her her sins, and grant that I may see her in the joy of eternal brightness. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

  12. My sister Elaine inspired me to be a better person. She loved me, watched out for me and prayed for me. Her prayers brought me to St. Timothy’s and renewed my faith and religious practices. Her devoted husband Bill and Elaine always included me in their life. I enjoyed vacationing with them at the beach. I am grateful for Elaine taking care of my daughters Genevieve and Tina at lunch time and after school. Thanks be to God, Jesus and the Blessed Virgin Mary for granting her a happy death and life eternal.
