Dear family - my heartfelt condolences at the loss of your beloved Orville. Mrs. Elllis, Arnold and Orville lived a few houses from me in Gary, IN and Mrs. Ellis would always walk down to my bouse when she heard me practicing the piano - Orville and I had the same piano teacher, Dr. Granuel LLoyd Whittemore. The twins and I attended the same high school. At some point, I lost touch with them but remembered them fondly always (we Roosevelt alum are like that). May you be comforted by precious memories and the love of friends as family as you adjust to life without Orville. God bless all of you.

To the family of Brother Orville Ellis

We want to let you All know that we appreciate Brother Ellis’ kind and helpful spirit.
Many years ago, I believe it is approaching 40 years now, he noticed that our daughter was suffering from eczema, and began bringing us some medicine that helped to relieve her itching, which was driving us mad as we watched and heard her scratching herself during the night.
We want you All to know that we thank him and his family for what I call a Christian act to our family.

Thank you, Elton and Charlene Collins
