So sorry to hear of Ellen’s passing. I worked with Ellen for 15 years at BCBS and always enjoyed talking and kidding with her. I know she loved her family and that she will be missed by many. I’m glad I learned of her condition before she passed and that I had an opportunity to message with her before then.
My love and sympathy goes out to Mary and Bonnie and Ellen’s family. Praying for you all.
