    My condolences to you Gene and to the rest of Ms Ella's family. I was so blessed to work with Ms. Ella for many years at Associated Brokers and I continually missed her presence in our Broker world for many years after she retired. She was the finest I have ever worked with and probably ever will. For many years we called her Mama Ella at work as she took so many of us under her wings and guided us to be better than we knew to be. There were times I fear I may have been one of her biggest challenges, but I am forever grateful for all she did and for all of her guidance. I can only imagine the fun she is how having in heaven. Praises that she will celebrate Christmas with Christ himself as there is no greater honor. I am sure she wishes we were there to enjoy it all with her. Hugs to you all as I am so sorry that I will not be able to attend the Friday service. Please know that you will be in my prayers and my family will say a special prayer of thanks Christmas day for the wonderful soul that blessed and touched my life. Wishing you all peace and comfort in the coming days.
