You were always the funniest person in my life. All of my humor I learned from you. I will never forget Christmas time at your house. Or when we helped you moved and you thought I was so innovative for putting tape over the salt shaker, hahahaha. I will miss you so much. I can't believe you're gone. Your legacy will live on. Keep visiting me in my dreams, I love seeing your beautiful face. I love you.

Ellie, I am schocked to hear of your passing. You will be greatly missed by your wonderful children and all of your co-workers. I Rember you as a bundle of efficient energy. Your can-do spirt was legendary. I had the pleasure of working with you at Azco and Team Industries when we started the pipe fabrication business for both companies. Because of you and your hard work they both became successful companies. You will be missed by everyone whose paths crossed yours. Rest In Peace dear Ellie.
