Jamie, Tina, & Amelia there are not adequate enough words for your loss. I know sweet Ella is surrounded by more love and beauty than we can ever imagine, waiting for you just beyond the bend for your reunion one day. Until then, please know that you are supported and loved very much!

To the parents and family of Ella, you all will continue to be on our prayers. Ella looked like an Angel today and at great peace. I know that she will be dearly missed by many. Find peace in knowing that Ella has gained her beautiful wings, for to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.

Tina, Jamie, Amelia and your whole extended family I don't have the words for the loss you are going through as sometimes life makes no sense, seeing all the love and support from family, friends and your community & with GODS help hopefully you'll find some bit of piece..... lean on your family & friends through the toughest of times and seek out support groups who have also had to endure this horrible tragedy as it does help to speak your mind and heal your feelings. Our Love and prayers for the family....

Jamie, Tina, Amelia and family~ we grieve with you the loss of beautiful Ella but not as the World grieves but as one who knows she rests with Jesus in God's perfect glory. We will never understand why bad things happen to good people but we trust in God's promise that eternal life rests in believing in Him. I know Ella is with Ben and all the Saints in God's perfect glory, unaware of time. Our hard job, as parents who have lost a child, is to get by until we are one day reunited. God doesn't pick us for our sufferings but he does allow them to unfold in this world. My prayer for you all is that you allow God to guide you through this in a way that will lead to blessings. We can speak from experience losing Ben that God is merciful and can bring light out of darkness. May God bless you and keep you, may His face shine upon you and bring you peace.

Sweet Ella, you grew into a beautiful young woman with a big heart for animals. Lucy is very happy to have you by her side again. Do me a favor? Can you take care of Shadow too? I know he'd appreciate some cuddles. You will be greatly missed.

My deepest sympathy during this difficult time. "Words seem so feeble in moments like these, Life is so precious, and death such a thief. The depths of your pain I cannot comprehend, but I'll stand alongside you in the darkness, my friend. Love is a bond that death cannot part, Gone from your arms, but ALWAYS in your heart."

Tina, Jamie and Amelia: I mourn the loss of your sweet Ella, who was a true joy to have in class--a real ray of sunshine. Her bubbly personality, her kindness, her enthusiasm for helping others, and her ability to befriend anyone will be truly missed. Franklin Central High School will remember Ella for the absolute gift that she was.
My deepest sympathies,

You are the kindest, sweet spirited, most loving girl. I hope you see how much so many people love you back. Thank you for all the laughs, the help with Augustine (who absolutely adores you), for trying to motivate Reis to clean her room even though she doesn't, for being the bestest, truest friend Reis has ever had, and for being like another daughter to me. My heart is broken, along with many others. Live you sweet girl! - Tara Lynne
