Sidney, we are so sorry to read about your Mothers death. I don't think we ever knew her name, even tho growing up, we saw her every Sunday and talked to her a lot. She was Mrs. Ellis to us, so we didn't reconize the name. Losing a parent is never easy, but you can take comfort in knowing she is with God and out of pain. We always had a very deep respect for her and knew most of the congergation at the church because we lived so close. My Grandparents went there. I don't think Jim really knew your Mother, but the Bell Family did. With deepest sympathy, Jim and Sue Richards
