To all of Ella's family, I sit here in my Lewes, De. home looking at a picture of Ella at my daughters wedding in Va. No matter where we were or where we went we always had such a great time together and distance did not stop that. I knew Ella since elementary school and we always found a way to sit down together and solve all of the worlds problems. We loved to go to Mosley's on the Charles and dance our feet off. It was there that Ella introduced me to my husband George and we often went out on double dates. I will miss Ella and her fantastic way of finishing my sentences before I finished them. I know she will always be an Angle looking out for all of her family and friends and I am proud to say she was one of my very best friends.

To All Of Ella's Family,
We were so saddened to learn of the passing of your beloved Ella. Even though she has only been in our life since Lauren and Stephen met, it seems like we've known and loved her for a life time. We feel that way about all of you. Ella will be sadly missed, but lovingly remembered always. She was such a kind hearted woman and I always looked forward to seeing her at the various "Burm" events. You will all be in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Our Dear Lord has gained an extraordinary Angel, who will always watch over each and every one of you. May her Memory be a blessing to all that love her. Amen. Rest In Peace, Ella. We'll see you again one day.

Forever Love,

Joan Hall
