    Ellie was one of the first persons who welcomed me into my home church Roberson Memorial Baptist Church. I am going to miss her. She was such sweet kind caring Christian. God just got him another angel. My sincere condolences to her family. My Friend Until the end & beyond.

    Ellie was one of my dearest friends. We started working together in 2004 and we became fast friends. She was my confidant during some difficult times over the years and we always had the best times together. I only think of Ellie with the fondest memories.
