My deepest sympathy goes out to Elnora’s family and all those lucky enough to have been touched by her loving and vibrant soul.
Over five years ago, at the 90th birthday celebration of her wonderful mother, I was shocked and deeply saddened to hear of a terrible illness that gradually denied Elnora of the physical powers that she once possessed in such abundance. Nevertheless, true to her nature, I was heartened to learn that she ultimately rose to the challenge of accommodating this deadly illness with a cheerfulness that so characterized her life.
Dear Ellie, may your love of life that so inspired those who knew you, forever remain your legacy, and at last released from the restraints of this world, may you soar free and unrestrained in all the worlds of God.
Also, thanks for sharing with me these well-intended kind words of so long ago; I know I’m somebody ‘cause God don’t make no junk!!
Till we meet again, good bye dear friend.
