    Message sent from the family:

    I don’t know if any of your forum friends would be interested, but I am attaching a couple of pictures of Ellen through the years, as well as a picture of her infamous “cat stroller” –

    Thank you all again for your support and kind words.

    The cats are being spoiled rotten by Ellen's Grandma Barb and Poppy Luc (who were babysitting them while we were on vacation) - I think they are helping them get through this period.

    Kate, I remember her telling us that her Grama took care of her cats when she was away. Glad to hear they are in good hands and I'm sure they do bring a measure of comfort to Grama & family.

    I had no idea; I felt like I was going to cry because I haven't lost many friends, and second, we were the same age. I send my condolences and prayers from the bottom of my heart. I did not know Ellen all that well, but I have viewed her profile before and knew exactly who she was before I viewed this post. May God bless her family in abundance through this very difficult and heart-wrenching time.

    This is truely a tragedy. A young life cut short. The world has lost someone who has made and would have continued to make a difference in many lives. We will all miss her smiling face at the top of her posts.

    My thoughts and prayers to you and your family Kate. I didn't know anything had happened until I saw Special Preskoo had changed her avie. I greatly enjoyed Ellen's posts. She always had such intelligent ideas (as do many of the posters on here) that would make me think about a different way to do the "same old skill". I will miss her comments.

    ((((((((cry))))))))) Those pictures are a treasure. Since I have twin baby girls it just kills in a way that I can't explain - so unfair to lose a daughter, and soooo unfair to lose a twin sister. Beautiful girls, both Kate and Ellen. Peace to your family.
