So sorry for your loss. Our heartfelt condolences go out to your family. I have been a long time neighbor of Al and Ellen. We have been neighbors since 1974. I remember how she was always working in her yard, or washing her car. She will truly be missed.
God Bless you and your family,
Ray and Beth Tessier
