Ellen was a sweet soul who loved God, her church and family. We have fond memories of her visits here in Florida. She just told us a few weeks ago she wished she could come back. It was here in Florida that she found her beloved cat Citra by the roadside.
May her family hold tight to their memories and may they bring you peace and comfort.

Prayers and Blessings,
Judy & Billy Layton

Words can not describe Ellen. She is a one of a kind Angel. I was blessed to be one that knew her. We had the best visit at MewMaw Rices one day. We laughed and talked about the old days . Always had a smile on her face. Steven, you are your mothers clone. Her heart is in you. She will always be with you.
Prayers for all,
Pam Raines

It is with sadness that I learned of your dear Mother's passing. She was like a daughter to my parents and a sister to me. No words of sympathy can ease the loss you bear. Still may you find some comfort in the thought that others care. When the Lord calls our loved ones home, he leaves a gift of memories in exchange. Hold on to your memories and let them guide you during this time of sadness. Although I will not be able to see you during this time, know that you are in my prayers.
