Ellie, Virginia and my Mom met up at Ella’s restaurant for lunch. We all sat down excited to see each other after Imagination Station had been closed for years. Billy shouted with joy when he saw us. He said it was like old times. We were at the restaurant talking for around four hours. We all kissed and hugged goodbye. If I could do it again with Ellie, I would. She was a kind soul and a very happy person all the time.
