Hearing of Elaine's passing was so very sad. I pray the memory of her lovely smile and her devotion to her family will give them comfort in the days and years ahead. I knew the Langston's during the "horsey" years, especially Page's desire to have a horse farm. At Lighthouse, Elaine designed the beautiful and intricate logo for Dunns Creek State Park. Many t-shirts and sweat shirt were sold to promote this local park. I still wear my stash with pride. My sincere condolences and love to all of you. Rest in the arms of Jesus, sweet lady Elaine.

Dear Terry and family,

I was so very saddened to read of Elaine’s death. Anyone who went to Crescent City High in the 70s knew one of the Langstons; but I was fortunate to be friends with both you and Elaine. Elaine, Kathy, Donna, and I were all buddies for awhile there. Time and distance caused us to lose touch, but my family and the Courier Journal always kept me informed of Putnam news. I want you to know that I am thinking of you and hope to “run” into you in the future. My condolences, Joy Myers Foley
