I am so very sorry for the passing of Ellie. While she is in eternal peace i know how hard it will be to carry on without her. You will and we will all be with our loved ones who have passed as God calls each of us home. I am reading all the messages and everyone feels the loss, and remembers her always with a smile. she left a happy footprint on everyone's heart. Her life was fill with purpose and she did everything with a smile. Please don't sadden her as she watches over you. I am sure she would want everyone to know, until you meet with her again, she wants you to live your life remembering her love for you. she was to happy of a person to see you sad. so, celebrate her. remember her, talk to her, feel her loving arms around you. and when you meet up again she will say thank you for not letting her passing ruin ruin your remaining days on earth. she is at peace and happy to be with others she had to say good-bye to and is now reunited with. always remember it's never good-bye, it's always, until we meet again.

Dear Aunt Ellie,
Thank you for always being there, messaging me, continuously being supportive to me and my family over the years. I will miss your messenger messages, loving supportive comments, and visits to our area for pizza or family get together. You always made me feel loved. You had such a light in your eyes and infectious laugh and smile. My deepest sympathies to Uncle Bill, your life long husband and friend and to your loving daughters, my cousins Beth and Audra. Also, sympathies to all of your other family and friends who adored you and will miss you. May you RIP and may your loved ones find peace. We love you, Aunt Ellie 💜
