My thoughts and condolences go out to Elena’s family and friends. She was a very nice person to know. It wasn’t to long ago about a month in half ago we were talking about retirement and she was so excited and would tell me should only had a few more years to go. I would spend about 30 mins in her office just her and I just talking about random things even if it was after my time to leave. She always talked about her family and her dog. She will be missed. May you Rest In Peace. Faustina

Prayers and condolences to the family of Elena.
Elena was my niece and friend that I could count on her for advice whenever I would I have a little problem or question she would say, Tia this is how to handle whatever it it was and always had an answer for me.
Going to miss her visits, dinners together and going into San Antonio to pick up tamales and other thing we did together.
If I went somewhere and Elena was not with me they would ask "where's Elena", I guess we were peach other's shadow
Elena, I will miss you dearly!
Love and prayer,
Emma Martinez
