    Dearest Carrie Beth and Grant, Garrett and Eli and family, my thoughts and prayers are with you all during your grief in the loss of your beloved Ellen. In the short time that I met and knew Ellen, I could tell that she had a special spark and her extraordinary courage to battle her illness inspired me beyond words. Ellen will be missed but her amazing spirit will live on in all those she knew and loved. I am sorry that I can not attend her memorial service, but my thoughts and prayers will be with you during this time. In honor of Ellen, I am making a donation to the Preschool. May God be with you. Sincerely, Jeff Cato
