We feel so bad that we didn't know about Mary Ellen's passing. We would have came to the memorial service. We lived next door to her and Sasha for 11 years. She watched out for us and took care of us and was a wonderful neighbor. We did go to Parkview and see her before she passed. We don't know if she knew we were there, but we talked to her and let her know that we cared. We will miss her. She is with her husband and beloved Sasha.
