    I am so sorry for your loss

  4. No words can take away the pain of losing a loved one, especially when it was too soon… I am just so sorry for your loss. Ellen is not suffering any longer, and I hope it brings you some comfort knowing that she is now in a deep sleep, in peace (1 Thessalonians 4:13,14).
    Please know that you are not alone going through this. God is with you while you endure this terrible loss. Please trust in His promise, that we will not be going through this forever; suffering, getting sick, growing old, and dying. There is a hope that God has promised us. Revelation 21:3,4

    So sorry to Ellen’s family. We just saw her last fall at a girls lunch and she was so proud of you all. You’re in my prayers to help you through your loss. The film you made is really beautiful, I’m sure she loved it.
