Not sure what to say?

So sorry to hear of Ellen's passing. She was full of high spirits and good humor.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief.

I am totally devastated. How I loved this woman and the way she made me laugh. Not only was she my friend, but she worked for me for many years when I had Special Lady in Fenwick. A week spent with her and Woody would leave you in stitches and totally refreshed. I am in deep sorrow for Woody and glad that Ellen knew how I felt about her. Keep them laughing up there Ellen. They got a good woman!

Linwood, I have many fond memories of Ellen from the times we were in Jobs Daughters together starting in the 8th or 9th grade. We even got to graduate in the same class as that was the first year of Indian River. She sent me a nice note when my Dad died 3 years ago. May you find peace in the memories of the time you were together. She was a kind person and made this world a better place.

My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
