"Ellen was not only my cousin but my best friend growing up.  Her Dad and my Mom were brother and sister.  We were always together at one of our houses or at Cloverdale visiting Uncle Raymond and Aunt Effie and fishing.  In the summer I stayed a lot at Aunt Agnes and Uncle Bill and was part of the family.  I sure miss those times miss all of them.  Of course being cousins we sometimes didn't get along but then we would  make up.  I was Ellen's Maid of Honor and as time went on I got married and life took us into different directions.  I always kept up with Ed and Ellen with my phone calls to Aunt Agnes. I truly will miss you Ellen a very special cousin. Until we see each other again I Love You, your cousin Sandy  Tell your Mom and Dad Hi from me."

"My Mother My Angel

© Kathy J Parenteau

Once upon a time an angel held my hand,
She wiped away my tears and helped me understand.
Our time on earth is brief, there's lessons to be learned,
Each precious day God gives us another page is turned.
Every chapter full of memories, times of joy and tears,
Triumphs and defeats, through every passing year.
She loved us unconditionally, always by our side,
When no one else would listen, in her we could confide.
With gentle words of wisdom she led us on our way,
Down the paths of righteousness if ever we did stray.
She saw the light in everyone and gave with no regrets,
Always from her heart let's not forget.
Angels come in many forms, for me it is my mother,  
With love I cannot say in words there'll never be another.  
Every day I turn the page in my heart will ever remain,  
Everything she taught me as I stroll down memory lane.  
Thank you God for giving me the most priceless of all treasures,
Help my Lord to keep alive her memory here forever.
I pray that I can some day be everything she hoped I would,  
That's she smiling down from heaven knowing she did good.  
As we gather here today there's no ending to her story,
Another chapter has begun full of grace and glory.
God's called her to his heavenly home, part of his great plan,
Although it may be hard, we all must understand.
Faith is what is hoped for, things we cannot see,
Heaven is promised to all of us if only we believe."
