    Ellen, we will miss you!
    You were my mother’s sister my aunt and a devoted wife to my Uncle Alex.
    How we relished your company, your smile, and sense of humor.
    Ellen, despite the miles and distance has been a symbol of warmth and hospitality.
    You were always there to listen to a problem and provide your time to say I care.
    With Fond Memories and Sympathy for your Loss’, John, Kevin, and Karen, please take comfort that she lives on through your mannerisms, wit, and humor as she, Ellen was a blessing to the entire Shatilla Family!
