It's been so long since I've been to visit and today I learned of your passing.
Eliis, you were such a sweet soul. Even though my time in your company was brief in relation to the time you spent on earth, I will have lasting memories and life lessons learned in only ways you could phrase. I smile every time I eat Quiche, it's not often that I cook nor introduce a new dish to someone. Thank you for your friendship.
To Ellis's family, my regrets for just now offering my condolences.
With much love and sadness,
"Jenny" and Helen-Ashley

Oh Double E... Just yesterday, I ran across a letter you wrote me and my family in July of 2002. Oh how it brought back such sweet memories of you my friend. You always had such a wonderful whit about you, and a smile on your face. Zach and I have truly happy memories with you and ole "Blue" at the farm. Though we moved away years ago, we never have forgotten about you. I love this pic of you XOXO. We miss you my friend. Naomi, I am so sorry for your loss. May God comfort you and your family. Much Love, De & Zach Burnett

Ellis and his family were members of our support network growing up in the Cross Hollows neighborhood. Countless cherished memories. Ellis will be remembered with loving kind thoughts and his admonition to "do math computations and eat beets". God Bless.
