My sincere Sympathies to the entire Buonomo family as they mourn the loss of a Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt and Friend to many. Elaine was alway like a second Mom to me growing up with Mary & Beth. I spent many days and nights at her apartment. Her door was always open and she was great listener. We'd get the bus to Paramus Park back when she worked in the Wig store and wait for her shift to end and ride the bus back home with her. Elaine would always listen and never judge you. You will be missed Elaine, may you rest in peace and celebrate with your Mom, Dad and Sister. Love Donna
