Dearest Sandy, Victor, Victor, David and Sherry, My heart aches for you in this difficult time. Having been there not so terribly long ago, I feel compelled to share wisdom that the acuteness of pain will diminish, only to be replaced by a vast collection of memories so fresh, you will be inspired to share them and rejoice in their bittersweet quality. Know she is finally without pain having lived an abundant life, richly blessed by her loving family. Rejoice in having been an integral part of that very life and move forward in your own lives to reap the joyful benefits of love.

Jimmie, Sandy and family I know you all know how much I loved Aunt Ellen. She was my mentor as a young teenager learning how to be a good employee. She and Uncle Bob taught me more than you ever know about being a good employee, worker and an all around good person. They were the perfect mentor for more people than you will ever know. Thank you Aunt Ellen and Uncle Bob for being part of my life.

Ellen was a remarkable woman for whom we always had the highest respect. Devoted to her family and business, she co-founded one of the oldest businesses in Westerville and worked there for over 70 years. Her strong character and hard work live on in the fine reputation of Westerville Cleaners and her outstanding family. Fritz and Carol Milligan
