So very sorry reading about the death of Ellyn. I know your heart is so broken and words of comfort are hard to find. The Bible is a true source of hope and comfort. One of those scriptures is found at Isaiah 41:10, 13. It says in verse 10, Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be anxious, for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes, I will help you, I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness. Verse 13 continues, For I, Jehovah your God, am grasping your right hand, The One saying to you, Do not be afraid. I will help you. Our heavenly Father promises to be there to help you during this stressful time and the hard days ahead.

I wanted to express my heartfelt condolences to all of Ellyns family. Death is the hardest thing we have to deal with in life. I know my words cant change anything and can do little to ease the pain you are feeling, so I pray that the God of comfort calm your hearts and help you heal.

A light has gone out of the world. I will miss your beautiful smile, your "diva" presence, your lovely voice, your joy in life, your example of mothering. I'm so sad for myself and all those you left behind. But I'm so grateful you are free from pain and suffering and with your Savior. Always, Paula.
