There are no words to explain my deepest sorrow to your family. Ella was so very beautiful and I hope each of you can find peace in knowing she joined other loved ones in heaven where there is eternal life, love and joy. Until you're all United again, know that your mom is now your guardian angel and she left each of you with a piece of her. May you find comfort in your wonderful memories you are left with. Love, hugs and prayers to each of you as you begin your healing process!
