Aunt Mary Ellen was extremely special. Such a gentle soul. Love her children, grands, great-grands, nieces, nephews, cousins by the dozens and all unconditionally. She was a woman of great faith and I have no doubt she danced right through the Pearly Gates to find all her friends and family that went before. I will miss her much but take solice in knowing she is at great peace. May God grant consolation to her beautiful children and may her soul and all of the souls of the faithfully departed rest in peace.❤👃😙
