Ellen was such a good and kind person. I have many memories sitting in her classroom at the end of a difficult day. We would start talking out our frustrations and feelings, then end up laughing. She always asked about my children and truly cared about how they were doing. She will be missed by so many
My thoughts and prayers go out to you Betsy and Calvin. She loved you dearly and talked about you often. I never actually met you but I feel like I know you both. Take care
