Ellyn was such a sweet, heart warming and loving young lady. I worked with Ellyn for about nine years. I enjoyed the meow sounds she would make, because of her love for cats. Ellyn loved her cats, Disney books, video's and diffidently her jewelry. "Ellyn had to be glamorous all the time." She made it a joy to come to work every day. To hear her say Annette, I'm so happy to see you! It filled my heart with such joy and sometimes even tears, to know how much love she showed towards me as her staff. You had to be a friend of Ellyn's to receive the love that was given. Ellyn was not only a resident, whom I had taken care of for many years. But, she became a friend and also my family. God bless you Ellyn. I know you received your wings, as we love you here, they're going to love you even more up there. You will truly be missed.

Love Always,
Your Staff Lennet

Dearest Lennet. We shared so many stories, smiles and laughs with and about Ellyn and her cats. I know you will miss her as much as we do and I thank you for your constancy of love and care you gave to her. Something only a friend could do. Blessings form her Dad.
