    TO THE FAMILY, MY PRAYER FOR GOD'S COMFORT AT A TIME LIKE THIS. I HAD KNOWN ELLEN FOR A BRIEF TIME WHILE WORKING AT THE OAKS HOSPITAL. I REMEMBER HER SMILE AND THE "GET IT DONE" ATTITUDE. WHAT I REMEMBER THE MOST WAS HER SMILE AND THE MOTHERLY CARE SHE HAD FOR THE PATIENTS. SHE HAD KEPT ME AS WELL AS HER CO-WORKER'S GROUNDED IN THE REASON WHY WE CHOSE NURSING AS OUR PROFESSION. I WILL MISS ONE OF GOD'S ANGELS HER ON EARTH BUT I KNOW SHE IS STILL NURSING AND DOING GOD'S WORK UP THERE IN HEAVEN. THANKS ELLEN , I WILL SEE YOU AGAIN ONE DAY. .I ASK GOD TO BE WITH YOUR FAMILY AND HAVE GOD'S LOVING ARMS AROUND THEM AND FOR THEM TO BE ENCOURAGED ENTRY PAMELA ALLSUP RN.
