My heart is heavy. I thought a lot of Mary Ella. Heaven is a bit brighter because she entered into it.
May the Lord pour over the family His peace that passes all understanding.

There was never a more gracious southern lady. Treasure the happy times you had with her because there were a lot. I can just imagine what went on when all of you were together. She will be missed dearly.
