I'm keeping you all in my prayers during this difficult time. Aunt Ellen was a wonderful person with such a positive outlook on things. She loved everyone and it showed. I have very fond memories of conversations we had as I was growing up and later on in life. Aunt Ellen has gone home to be with Charity and Rusty Dean and will not suffer any more.
All our Love,
