    Our hearts are truly broken but God knew our Mae Mae needed eternal rest. Family, keep your heads up and remember Psalm 27:14 KJV – Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.

    Ella and I have been friends since we were 4 years old, we were lifetime friends. We attended elementary through high school together. After graduation from high school, we always managed to keep in touch as our lives took their individual paths. My heart is broken that Ella has transitioned to her eternal resting place; I will miss her greatly. I am so glad God allowed us to remain friends; my friends are my extended family. I valued and loved Ella as if she was not only my sister in Christ, but as a sister that did not share the same DNA. May Ella have eternal peace, rest and rejoice with other family members and friends who preceded her in their eternal journey. May God give Walter, her husband and the rest of her family the strength and continued blessings, as each of you transition through this great loss. I have so many fond memories that Ella and I have shared together. Ella was a true blessing to anyone who knew her. Ella spoke with a raspy tone of voice which was beautiful, but when she sang she sung with an Angelic, 1st soprano tone of voice, she was simply awesome. I am so sorry I will not be able to be there in person, please know that I am there with you in spirit, as you grieve and celebrate the life of Ella. I loved Ella dearly, and I feel and share your pain in this tremendous loss. Much love and prayers. Denitra Foy (Katy, TX)
