In Memory of Ellen

Today, at 10:15am a dear friend and amazing human being, Ellen, lost her courageous battle with cancer.

Ellen was the type of woman who brought an energy to the room that was undeniable. Her spirit was resounding and she would light up a room each time she entered it. She was the most selfless person I have ever met, and despite her many health challenges, she always found time to do things for others.

Her fight was courageous and her spirit contagious. Ellen taught all those around her what the power of postive thinking is. I never once saw Ellen down, or victimized. Instead, she constantly told everyone how blessed she was to be alive.

There are very few people on this planet who can inspire those around them in a way that changes their life forever. Ellen did this for so many.

As Ellen transitioned today, The Lord and Heaven just recruited one of our best. Ellen will be missed in ways that are unimaginable. Not just by her two stoic daughters who have been at her side during this journey, but her loving and supportive husband and all her friends.

There will be a void that will never be filled with Ellen's passing. I will miss her lovely demeanor, her beautiful laugh, her inspiring smile and her amazing insight. I will miss the light in the room that is no longer. My only peace is in knowing that her light has traveled and resides in a place much more grand than this the hands of God.

I love you Ellen, and will miss you. Please know that I will cherish your memory and live each day to the fullest, knowing that you are watching over us all and continuing your work in Heaven.
