Ellie was the nickname I used for most of the past 27yrs that I had with My Mother-In Law Elsie Eberz
She was one of my “5-Favorite Girls “ she was pretty proud and would light up every time I would remind her !

I have 1000’s memories - A few my favorites are , we took her and George ( Husband) to Key West to celebrate their 50th Anniversary!

Our Family Xmas Cruise (2012)
I loved watching her face as we pulled into port for all Counties we would visit.
She would tell me “ Not Bad for a girl from Chicago “ ....

She will always be one of the True Loves of my lifetime!
She promised to send me a “ Sign” that she is all settled in “UP There”
I am not worried cause I know and am sure she is cleaning up and painting her new room bright Blue & Yellow.
So .... I wait!

Your loving son-in -law
Cliff
