    To all the family,
    When Ms. ELLA & I first met, I honestly didn’t have any idea that she would have become and be so important to me. Loved her like my own mother. Loved & will miss her stories & memories of her life. Her wisdom,her smile, her soft little laugh will so be missed. When I moved in December. SHE WAS my hardest goodbye. I’m grateful I saw her Saturday. Prayers for your family at this time of sorrow. If anything is needed remember me. RIP MS.ELLA I miss you & love you.
