Ellen and I shared a wonderful time our junior year in high school. We went on trips together--camping at Lake Brownwood with my family, a trip to Big Bend with her family. We were in Annie Get Your Gun together and South Pacific. We also shared a love for our beloved Beatles--Ringo was my favorite and George was Ellen's favorite. She loved to sing Joan Baez songs and was terrific. We lost track after high school, but I thought about her so often. I am so sorry that I never stayed in touch. I remember her booming laugh that was so infectious. Maybe she and George are sharing a song now. She was a dear person and my prayers go out to John Bill and Ann.
