"To the Ellis family, I am so very sorry to read about your loss of Arlene.  Death is only a temporary part of life.  Jesus promised us a wonderful resurrection of the dead (John 5:28,29), so we have the hope of being reunited with our deceased loved ones.  In the meantime, though the pain of loss through death may seem sometimes insurmountable, rest assured that God will give you the strength necessary to endure the coming months (Psalm 46:1).  Please accept my deepest sympathy and sincere condolences."

"Beanie-  We love you and are going to miss you so much.  Our heart is breaking and heavy with a such a sense of more loss for our family. I know you are in heaven with Aunt Jenny & Uncle Sherwood and Papa and Grandma and Aunt Ria and many others that have gone on before us. I know they were waiting at the gates for you.  We are saying good-bye to you today for the last time and it will be very hard, but we will see you again one day.  We love you so much and as you told me in the hospital- "Don't Cry Tuttie" "Don't Cry". Love you always & Forever- Tuttie Fruitti, "TEVE",Brendan & Ria Kate."
