    Rita, Debbie, and Linda; My deepest sympathies to your family. Your mom was a kind and loving person to everyone she met. I loved when she would come to the flower shop and visit.

    My Mother, my Friend, my confidant. How will I ever look at another day knowing your not just down the road? If there is one thing I could pick and have from you, it would be your beautiful loving heart. I miss you Mom.

    On behalf of Ellen’s late sister, Gwen, and her family; Robert and Liz, Michael and Tracy, and Christine; we send our sincere love, thoughts, and prayers to every family member and so many friends who have been touched by such a beautiful sprit as Aunt Ellen. Our lives would not be the same without Aunt Ellen’s thoughtfulness and kindness and love for so many people…and animals too! Her presence here is missed but we believe that Heaven is also rejoicing in her arrival back Home. We send lots of hugs. XXOOO
