On Thursday, we said goodbye to the finest music teacher any child could ever be so blessed to have. Elaine has been exactly that blessing for us. Military life is a swirling tornado of uncertainty, so when you find those special people who aren’t just there for you, but consistently lift you up, you have found a rare gem, indeed. Elaine was always honest with the boys, always respected them, maintained high expectations (regardless of whether or not they met them) with a positive attitude fueled by a genuine love for music, and for them.
L-R: Middlin (violin, “trying not to cry”); Firstie (piano); Elaine; and Fireball.
If you live in Central Texas, you would be hard-pressed to find a better music teacher to inspire a love of music–and God Himself–in your child.
Thank you, Elaine, and God bless! You should know that the car ride was very quiet on the way home. :’ (
We will miss our Thursdays for more than just the music…
