To honor Elaine: bake a cake for a neighbor, plant a blooming flower in your yard, tell a joke to a stranger in the grocery isle, sing along to the radio but use the wrong lyrics, tell a story about a person and spell their last name, drive a friend to their appointments, donate books to inmates, pick up a sick kid from school for a parent and watch Jeopardy.
In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Backpack Ministry at Flowood Baptist Church.
