Mary Ellen was one of the kindest and most caring people this world will ever know. One look into her beautiful blues eyes you could feel the love of her kind gentle soul. She would do anything for anyone, and her selflessness was boundless. She would always make you feel at ease and comfort you when you needed it the most. She just had the special gift of true compassion. She made friends so easily with her kind nature ,and once she was your friend she loved you fiercely with all her heart and soul. She traveled the world celebrating her husband’s concerts and enjoying the cultures of all the countries they had the opportunity to visit.
