Dear Bill & Barb, so sorry to hear the passing of your Mom. Similar to my Mom, it appears she lived a long and productive life. Years before my Mom passed, we did a tribute video to her that included the lyrics from the song: "You are the wings beneath my wings." Hope those comforting words help with your grief during the days and months ahead: It might have appeared to go unnoticed, but I've got it all here in my heart. I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it. I would be nothing without you. Love, Ron & Meg

We are so sorry to learn of your mom's passing. We had the first apt. near the house for 6 wonderful years. Your mom was the dearest person to us; she told us about herself and we all shared stories. when our first son was born, oh, how she loved seeing him. Living there was the best place we had, especially when our son was little; that big driveway was the best. Years later, i visited your mom when she had a hip replacement, I think? at John Heinz. She was a bit shocked to see me, but the size of her smile when I told her who I was and she remembered me...wow :-) I sat and visited with her a while; and i know she appreciated that. Ellie was a dear lady with a big heart!!!

I met Ellie more than 25 years ago when she hired me as a contractor to help do repairs on her apartments. She was a sharp businesswoman yet a compassionate friend. Willing to give anyone the benefit of the doubt...for a meal...a place to stay....or an ear to listen. Even after I left my contracting business, Ellie still sent me the annual Christmas card, called me for advice about her properties, called me from time to time just because she was thinking about me...and we talked about how her beloved 'Kiko' was doing and asked about my wife and pets. When Ellie would call or I'd stop by, we'd always ended up talking about our faith in Jesus Christ. St Paul once wrote of those whom he had converted and nurtered in the Faith: "You are living epistles, known and read by all men." Ellie was such a 'living epistle'. Anyone who ever met Ellie came to know Jesus by her love...and her own sufferings. Thank you, Ellie, for taking in this 'stray' and giving him a permanent home in your heart! Joe Supulski
