OMG I'm devestated.  Ellen was one of the nicest people.  She was so  much fun!  I don't have words

to say how sad I am to learn of her passing.

Alzheimers is a horrible disease, my brother has it and it has changed him to someone I don't even

know anymore.

Ellen, rest in peace and God be with your children.

I once caught Ellen on a plane from salt Lake City to Minneapolis..About 15 years ago..There was only about 10 passengers on the plane as it was Christmas day and this girl kept looking back at me..She finally got up and came back and asked if I was Lee Reierson She introduced herself.and than told me how I and Pat Pearson took here purse before math class in 7th grade and threw it back and forth and made her very upset..I could have faded away about than after hearing that encounter about me..But the chances of just seeing her after all those years warmed our memory banks to the fullest..Funny how we meet people we least expect in strange places..U will never be forgotten and I hope U have forgiven me

I  was shocked to hear of Ellen's passing.  My thoughts and prayers go out to her family. I have lost my 2 older brothers to Alzheimers .  It is a devastating disease.   Lee Rierson,  I loved your reflection.
