You were an amazing person. We haven’t seen each other often, but when we did it was like we just seen each other yesterday. My last memory was the day you had stopped by the house when we lived down the street from Phyllis, and we sat on my front porch and talked the morning away. My second favorite memory is when Adam told you about the stuff from the jewelry store, and you and Johnny came and got it. We all enjoyed spending time together that day. I hate now that we did not make that happen more often. But I know you loved me, and you know I adored you. I know that you are in a much better place now. But I never thought I would never get to hug you again. I love you cousin. Until we meet again 😊

Aunt Ellen is the most loving, humorous, selfless, beautiful soul that I am very blessed and so lucky to call my aunt and my momma's best friend. I'm so happy when I last visited with her a few weeks ago, that she was ear to ear smiling, stating she hadn't laughed that much in a while; it truly was a lovely day. She and I will always be each others' 'Calendar Girl' (our song when i was little). Uncle Johnny, JoEllen, Jill, Adam, and kiddos-- I love you all and thank you all for giving her such an amazing life! We all have a big piece of her to carry on with us throughout life, making the world that much more beautiful.
