I will always hold a dear spot in my heart for Ellen, caring for her @ IVWL was such an honor!! Painting nails, brushing each others hair, eating dinner together, or talking about her beautiful porcelain babydoll just made both our days. Ellen was such a beautiful soul with a loving heart and I will cherish those days.

My time with Ellen was short but will definitely be treasured. We crossed paths for a reason and she will forever be in my thoughts. My deepest condolences to her adoring family and friends.
