Grandma I love you so much. I think the part that hurts the most is I’ll never have anymore special moments to cherish. We can’t create anymore memories. But we’ve made so many together over the past 43 years that I cherish from my younger throughout my older years. You were such an amazing grandmother. As I told you before you passed, you taught me how to be a great grandmother and that legacy I will try my best to carry on. You are just so precious to me. I get so much of my personality, stubbornness, and spitfire from you. I’ just pray one day I can have family, grandchildren, and great grandchildren that love me as much as you are loved and missed. Love you Grandma so much forever and always. And please remember to come and get me when it’s my turn to go home. I can’t wait to see you again. Xoxo 💋

Mary Ellen was in my life from the time I was just a kid. I sold popcorn at the Budd Theater when she and Warren owned the place. Now and then I babysat Sherrie and Billy, which was always a fun time. Then quite a few years later I had the privilege of working with her at Department of Social Service.. I always admired Mary Ellen for her honesty and kindness to me. To Sherrie and her family I offer my prayers for strength to go through this sad time. Love and Prayers, Bonnie

My sincere condolences to the family. The Bible repeatedly speaks about the elimination of death and God's promise of everlasting life for mankind on a paradise earth. Our Creator has the power and desire to put a permanent end to death. Soon this enemy, death, will be brought to nothing. 1 Corinthians 15:26
