I'll never forget how welcoming Aunt Ellen was with our family whenever we visited her and family in the summers. I would always know she would come to the door with open arms, a big hug and that knowing wet kiss on the cheek. I remember her sitting and picking crabmeat at the table which was a second job. She always worked hard and was a great homemaker and hostess. I will miss her greatly :-(.
