    To the family of Ella Mae, Oh how I will miss my dear friend and classmate. We visited often with her at her home in Encampment. Last summer, we enjoyed a trip with her and Gus to Saratoga and had lunch and toured the town. I will remember her with much love and her courage as she struggled to fight the awful effects of the cancer. Our prayers to Gus. May God bless all of her family and now she is resting in peace. June and Clarence
