Dear Cousin Nancy,
I am so going to miss my phone calls with my beloved Great Auntie Ella. She has been a mainstay in my life as long as I can remember. No summer visit to CT (from Florida) was complete until my Grandmother (Eva Miskimen) either took us to see Auntie Ella or she came over to their house to visit.
Without fail our phone calls consisted of the current listing of Auntie Ella's ailments then an overview of how her family was doing. She was so proud of each and everyone of you! She always asked about my brother and sister (Shawn and Candace) and my husband (Scott) and daughter (Shawneen Ella).
To take a quick turn, it was not until I read the obit that I realized my Great Auntie Ella's name was actually Ellen!! My Grandmother always called her Ella and my Mom (Norma Ella Miskimen Dyess) always called her Auntie Ella! I even gave my daughter her middle name!
I was so happy that I was able to see her (photo attached) during our visit to CT last August.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
