    I am sorry for your loss. Ella was such a special lady. I worked at Lake Ridge several years ago. Ella taught me to knit when she was around 99.

    Sorry for your loss. God left Ella on this Earth for this long for a reason. I was a rehab patient at Lake Ridge and had her for a neighbor in 2005, and I was just amazed at how knowledgeable she was. God Bless.
