    Today would have been Ellen's 26th birthday. I am sure this is a difficult day for her entire family, particularly her twin. Just wanted to let them know they are in my thoughts and prayers today.

    Kinder, you read my mind. I'm so glad you started this thread. Happy Birthday Ellen and to her sister. I'm sure it's been a difficult year.

    God Bless

    I have been thinking of her as well. I thought of her when the discussion came up of how the board has changed. I thought of how much I missed her replies and funny stories. She always had the best answers for how regular ed teachers could realistically serve all children.
    Prayers to her family :hugs:

    She had great adivce. She had some good stories. She had a cute one about losing her teeth in her sister's pancake and leaving a funny note for the tooth fairy.

    Happy Birthday Ellen :hugs:

    Happy Birthday to Ellen and her twin. I miss the advice she gave on this board too. Her family is in my prayers. I'm sure this is a bitter sweet day for them.

    I just wanted to say how touched I was that you all remembered Ellen on her birthday, as well as me. My sister was an amazing person, and was truly my best friend, so the idea of turning 26 without her was an emotional & frightening experience for me. But I made it through the first birthday, and will make it through many to come. I'm very lucky to have a strong support system of family & friends who did everything possible to make the day a positive experience for me (as much as it could be).

    My family, friends, and I continue to deal with the very up-and-down nature of grief, but I'm happy to say that while there are still many rough days and setbacks, things in general have slowly begun to feel better. We appreciate everyone's support and concern, and find comfort in knowing that Ellen was very simply a wonderful person who continues to be missed by many.
