"Aunt Ellen was my daddy's only sister. I didn't get to see her often but she was always in my thoughts and prayers. I am sad to know I won't see her here on Earth again but I know she's home in Heaven with my daddy. I wish for her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren to have comfort in knowing she's not suffering any more."
