Our sympathy to your family. We will miss Ella's smile and her sweet hello friends every week in music. The girl band will not be the same with a special piece absent, although I know she will bring a smile to many faces in heaven. She was one of a kind and we were lucky to get to spend some precious time with her. Erin sends a heartfelt wave to your family.
