  10. I still cannot believe that she is gone. We were little girls together, growing up in Rustic Hills. I love you Ellen. I know your family was everything to you.

  11. Mom, you were such a kind, loving, and forgiving person. I miss you so so much. I never truly knew the words “I miss you” until you passed on. You were my first home, my first friend, my first love. There is no greater love than a mother’s love for her children and I feel that now more than ever. So many people have told me how they “just can’t imagine” and I would give my all to be on the other side of this right now. But I will be strong because I was your strong one – I got my strength from you.

  12. I had the pleasure of meeting Ellen a few times through her daughter Olivia. As i remembered she was like the mom from a hallmark movie, ideal. So kind, olivia once told me she said I look handsome enough for Hollywood. Shes the first person i think of everytime i see the photo she was complimenting, living forever in that moment.

  13. Our condolences to her husband and children. May your strength carry on for her, as she is watching. Your angel in the sky!

  15. How do you go on without your best friend – you were, and will always be everything to me, my life, my heart – we would talk and say we couldn’t imagine not having each other in our lives – I am completely broken without you and will continue to be until we see each other again – I love you so very, very much, your sister Donna

  16. It is hard to think you are no longer here physically, but I know you are still with us. I still had so much I wanted to say and talk to you about. You always had such a calming nature about you and always gave the best advice. Your last text to me said “I always have a great time, talking laughing and hanging out”. I would give anything to have another moment with you. I wish I could give you a big hug and tell you how much I love you! Thank you so much for loving me unconditionally and being there for me. I will cherish all of our talks and laughs we had. Your laugh always made me laugh. I love you so very much, mom! We are lucky to have such a beautiful Angel watching over us!

  17. Philip I am so sorry for your loss. I am sorry I did not make it to the service I am praying for you and your family for the Lord to make you strong. At my age, I’m not driving too much. I am so sorry that you lost the core of your family, a woman is always the core of her family. I will try to come down and see you guys whenever I can when the weather warms up. I pray for you and your family to be strong as life goes on. Tell your mother I’ll come and see her also love you, your Aunt Martha and the Aragon family.
