Mrs. Ellis, always so calm, cheerful, sweet, wise, beautiful, patient and strong. I am happy I knew her for a little while.

Dear Barbara and Michael: Your mother was my mother's best friend and we kids got to know your mother well during their friendship and we kept in touch with Nell even after my mother passed away. Nell and I met for lunch several times since Ernie died to talk about all the memories of the past thirty years or so that she was friends with my mother, Beaulah Wright. She was special to our family; we loved her very much and she will be missed. I still have a wood box in my house made by Ernie and it constantly reminds me of the two of them. Much love from us, Janet Watkins daughter of Beaulah and Posey Wright
