To Ellie's family and friends: From a friend. Ellie was a good friend of mine, my best friend. She will always be in my heart. And...a reminder of her will always be in my hand because of a key ring that she gave me many years ago. Attached to the ring is small plaque that says: "Friends are the hidden treasures of life." We treasured each others friendship. It was thirty-six years of friendship. Even when I stop driving, that key ring will be in my hand or close by. Love and Hugs, Nancy

Eu não te conheci. O que lamento profundamente. Conheci um pedaço de voce, seu filho, Nelson.
Fica a certeza de que, quem colocou no mundo uma pessoa tão doce como seu filho, certamente, era doce igualmente.
Fique em paz, com o brilho da luz misericoriosa de Deus.
