I am so sorry to hear about him passing. I worked with him at General Motors. He was a very nice man to know. Read Psalms 46: 1 for words of comfort and peace. I love you Barbara and feel your pain of losing someone.



Love,

I have a lot of fond memories of working with Ellie at GM..The nickname that I always called him was "the legend" because when we would travel to a location in the plant, we always had to add an extra half hour because everyone knew him and would stop to say hello to him..what a great guy...God bless Ellie and his family.

Father-in-law or as I affectionately called you Daddy Dummett,
I will miss the telephone calls and seeing you on those rare occasions when visiting.
You are and will aways be a pillar of strength. My prayers are with you and the family.
With all my love, Suzette
