Not sure what to say?

Ella lived next door to my brother when he was battling cancer. She reached out to him and was such a good neighbor! After my brother passed away, I would stop by and chat with her. She was indeed one of the sweetest people you could ever know. Glad I got the chance to thank her for being a good neighbor to my brother at a very difficult time. Will always be grateful that I got to know her.

Ella B will be remembered as one of the sweetest/kindest women that ever lived. She was generous to a fault, always considering the welfare of those around her, a real caring person. I ran into her in Cracker Barrel a few years back and although she was having difficulty doing what she was best at(caring for others), she still asked how I and my family were doing. I know you will miss her deeply, I have all of you in my prayers. Sincerely Melissa Phelps and family
