Bradley and family,

I had the pleasure of being a virtual friend with Ellen on Facebook. By that friendship alone I could tell the caliber person that Ellen was. I could tell she loved deeply and she was a beautiful soul. All who had the honor of knowing her personally sound truly blessed, and I’m sorry I didn’t get that chance.

Please accept my sympathies and know you have my continued thoughts and prayers. May You find God’s grace and peace during these difficult days ahead.

Love,
Kathie

I still can’t believe you’re gone, my dearest sister, my only sister. You were my everything! My heart hurts so much! I’ve been blessed with you this far in life, my love for you will never end. I guess Heaven needed another beautiful Angel. We just weren’t ready for you to go! You were such a blessing to our family. I’ll never forget all the memories we have together! The greatest daughter to our parents, the sweetest granddaughter to our grandma, the best sister and friend I’ll ever have, and to our brothers, a wonderful sister-in-law to my dear husband Willie, a precious aunt to my baby girl Shelby (you were the first to hold her when she was born), and you stayed right by my side through it all, the most loving great aunt to our newest princess Addison and an absolutely amazing wife to the most wonderful man you shared your best life with, Bradley! And I know you were the best daughter-in-law to Kathy & Paul. You were a wonderful friend to everyone you knew and it’s definitely showing up with all the love and support! I’ll hold you in my heart until we meet again! We all love you more than anything!

Rest peacefully in Heaven my dear sister 💜 I love you always 💜

I had the absolute pleasure of working with Ellen every day for the past several years. She was efficient, dedicated and hard working. But more importantly, she was kind..... very kind. Every morning I looked forward to her friendly greeting. She was not only a coworker, she was my friend. I will miss her tremendously. I am keeping her family in my prayers. She is simply irreplaceable. Heaven gained an amazing angel.
