Elli holds a special place in my heart. A lady full of passion and drive. She was a very ineresting and intelligent woman. She made me laugh. She knew exactly how she wanted things. I love people who can be direct, I am enough younger, that I can't get away with it yet. I am sure look forward to the day I can! I miss her, I know her family does. I wish you all comfort in your time of sorrow.
