Eric, I am so sorry to learn of your mother’s passing. She was a woman that cared deeply for her family and her home. It’s been a very long time since I’d seen either of you but you cross my mind frequently. Sending prayers and wsrm thoughts your way and to the rest of Ellen’s family.

When I lived in Prescott when I was little, Ellen would come over to see us (especially my Uncle Ray). I wouldn't want to go to bed, so she would lay down with me and sing to me till I fell asleep. She had such an amazing voice that I will never forget. I love you Aunt Ellie, till we meet again rest easy and Fly high!
