Harry so kindly messaged me that Ellen had passed. Oh my, the memories! Ellen and I joked that there were, at the time, two "Ellen Latter(s)" Please accept our family's deepest sympathy for your loss.

I met your mom a long time ago , Ron Hendsbee introduced us.
She was so sweet , bubbly, big smile . I lived in Eastwood Manor, saw her all the time at bingo, in the lounge, helping at anything that needed to be done, use to visit her when she moved to Nantucket, she was such a lovely lady. She is gone but will never be forgotten, I am so very sorry for your loss, hugs to you and yours.
