To Ellis’ wife and family,
I am so sorry of your loss. When Ellis lived in Shelby, I prepared his tax return for many years. I considered him a personal friend.
I am so glad he got into church; and now he is in a better place than we are.
God bless you and yours!
So sorry to hear about Ellis B.I’m another one of his cousins that grew up with him. May the Lord give his wife comfort with the loss of her companion.
Jewel, I am a cousin from Kentucky. Ellis B and I were close at one time while growing up, but then let time and distance part us. I am so very happy that Ellis B was going to church and is now with Jesus. We can all see each other again one day. I got your address from Mona, but just never sent a card. Now, I am so sorry that I didn’t let him know that I was thinking of him and keeping him in my prayers.
Jewel, Dema, Arthur, Alden, Dentis, Delmas, Leslie, and family, I have you in my heart and will keep praying that God will give you comfort and strength at this difficult time. May God bless each of you.
Our hearts and prayers are with you.
