I was so saddened to hear of Ella’s passing and am so sorry for your loss. She was my very good friend when we both attended Minatare High School. We shared many great times together and I have always had the utmost respect for her. She was kind, caring and beautiful, both inside and out. My prayer is that your many wonderful memories of the times you shared with her, will bring you comfort and peace. My deepest sympathy.
