My husband and I knew Ella very well in high school. i just looked her up in our yearbook. We graduated in 1967 from Baker High in Columbus Ga. She was a good friend. We had NO idea that she lived so near us! We live in Longcreek in Blythewood. Been here for 18 years. I always liked her. What a sweet person. Army Brats!

Ella was a dear friend and will be missed so much. We had so much fun, shopping, looking at antiques, going to shows, and the beach. They were the best times. And long talks over lunch and dinner. She taught me a lot and gave me great advice. She was the smartest person I have ever known. Just brilliant. And kind. I miss her. Tuco, you were so good to her. I am glad she had you to take care of her and love her. We are thinking of you and all the family during these difficult days.
