Ms. Lee Ella will be missed by all that new and loved her. She touched my life and many others that she encountered. Hearing her tell stories of her life and seeing her laugh always brought a smile to my face. The next few days will be difficult for her family. I pray that each of you remembers a special memory of Ms. Lee Ella and hold it close to your heart. Those memories will comfort you in the days ahead.
