“Sending my sympathy with deep love to all of ELLA's family. As I grew up ELLA was one of my favorite aunts -- my Dad's eldest sister. In time she became for me, a model wife and mother! I'm glad that she is lovingly safe in Jesus' arms and I am grateful for her love and interest in my life over these many years. Praying for all of you!”
