    I just want to say how sorry i am for your lost, especially around the tough holiday seasons! I met Ellen my freshman year in high school. We had typewriting class, together, we became friends learning to peck at a keyboard. She was a wonderful, funny, smart, and beautiful person. She will be greatly missed! My thoughts and prayers are with all her family. May God be with you during your difficult times!
