Dear Family,

Am sorry to hear of Ellen's passing. I knew her as a friend and fellow worker at OCC. Many a day I had occassion to stop and chat with her at her window, she always had a smile, and helped me through some tough times. I will remember her fondly. I never had a chance to meet any of her family but I know for certain she was quite proud of her family as she spoke of them often. God Bless you all. Sincerely "Ronnie"

Michele and family-having lost both of my parents recently I know that no words can fill the hole that is now in your daily life. However, I do know that over time the tears that now fill your eyes when you think of your mom will turn into a warm smile as you remember all of the wonderful memories you made together.
