Ellen loved to be outside gardening almost as much as she loved to be surrounded by her family. Her desire and determination in life mixed with her values and strength of character were inspiring. She chose to focus on the good, and her carrot cake was damn good! Ellen's love was honest, open, and

unconditional. It is both humbling and important to remember that her legacy lives on in us.
