It’s so painful when the ones we’ve loved our whole lives falls asleep in death, it leaves a huge hole in our heart. But take courage, the God of all Comfort is able and willing to help you cope with your grief. 2 Cor:1:3,4. We look forward to the time when death will be no more in harmony with Rev 21:4. Much love especially to Barbara Jean,Jeffery, Celeste, and Kevin my other family 😘

Aunt Ellarene was my heart and I loved her so much. I will miss her so much, but I know God has a wonderful Angel who will be missed by so many of us. Love my family so much and praying so hard for all of us.

I remember Ellarene well as she was our neighbor on 22nd St. in Anderson. I spent many days playing with her children Barbara, Patricia, and Jerry. May the Holy Spirit comfort you in these days.
