    Aunt Ellen you will be missed by many. I have such fond memories of you from my childhood to adulthood. Like our annual aunt and cousin sleepover at Sherry’s house. All the secrets we told and the laughing that went on. I feel like I am so blessed to have such a loving Aunt and a special friend all rolled up in one special package. Not many neices even know their Aunt’s or even have a relationship with them, but in our family, not only do we know them we share so many special memories. I know you are watching over us and cheering us on to make and have more special memories and fun times together.
    I love you and will miss you.

    P.S. We will take good care of Uncle Pete for you.
