Elena Bright Shapiro - gone too soon from this earth, but never gone from the hearts of those who knew and loved her dearly.

Crystal chandelier above the dining table at my friend, Brantly's house in Winston-Salem, NC.
There were crystals hanging in every window in the house to catch the light as it filtered through all day long and cast rainbows around the rooms.
Each rainbow was a reminder that dear Elena brought joy to all she knew and the colors made it possible to see the love that filled the rooms throughout the house.
...and the pond in the backyard with the gazebo nearby that is now surrounded by the 21 tulip bulbs planted on her birthday......Biby's idea to add one each year on her birthday. A beautiful tribute.
Love always to Brantly, David, Biby and Sam and everyone else whose lives Elena touched.


  1. thank you for going, Jone. it's very very sad. I"m glad she has you for a friend.

  2. The tulips will be a great and beautiful tribute.
    I´m convinced that you are a great support to her family.
