Remembering you yesterday,as like so many days. Always giving yourself and asking for nothing in return. You're probably still trying to give in heaven,where everything is already perfect.Rest in peace you're
perpetually missed.

Forever missed but always carrying my memories in my heart! When the gates swing open for me to sit at the King' s Throne, I'll look forward to seeing you again, Ella. Keep walking around in heaven with that beautiful smile. Rest in Heaven, my friend.

As I write this my eyes fill with tears. Thank you ma for EVERYTHING you taught me over the years. I remember the exact day that God blessed me with you, your smile, your wisdom, and my 4 amazing brothers Atiba, Tundy, Dana, and Moe! I have NOTHING but fond memories of 385 and the studio that I lived in while I lived with you. During that time you taught me how to be a man, you help me with all the tough love to transition into the man I am today. You accepted me, encouraged, me, and love me as only you can. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you. I remember the day you purchased your Mercedes benz, you told me to ALWAYS reach for better, always strive to be better. I thank you for your support and being at just about EVERY concert I sung at while I was singing with the gospel choirs I sung with. And I remember sing at the McDonalds gospel fest and when we won, and they opened the curtain to announce we had won, of all the thousands of people there, I saw you, and the look of love and pride you had on our face. Ive said goodbye to your body, but I still speak to your spirit as it does me! I love you and miss you and all the wisdom you've shared with me ive passed down to my children. Rest Ma! You've so earned your wings!

Dear Ms. Ella,
Thank you for entrusting your home to youth ascending into adulthood, and for providing guidance for how to take care of one. Safe journey into the ancestral realm.

To say she was like a aunt to me and my husband would be an understatement. Her knowledge of East Palo Alto and her common sense and fearlessness will always stay with us as we go through the rest of our lives. Rest well, Aunt Ella. We'll see you again. - Gary & Jerri

Ella, Thank you for the many years good years of friendship, laughter and tears we shared. The one memory I hold dear is Thursday May 7, 1998, that day we knelt in your living as you redeciated your life back to Christ. I won't say goodbye, but I will see you in Heaven. Peaches
