My dearest Ellie,

May you rest in peace. You were the one who mentored me in so many ways. I achieved success in my Postal career and personal life by following your advice and aspiring to meet your high standards, work ethic, and integrity. You always had people and family in your heart and brought so much joy to all who knew you. Hard work was no enemy to you. You always gave it all you had and there are so many people who benefitted from your honesty and perseverance. I am still following your advice because it was always true and good. With love in my heart, Laura Lewis
