    I looked for you this morning
    but you were nowhere to be found
    then,I heard the angels say
    Ella, you will fly on angels wings

    her cherubim smile would light the skies

    I will wait for you my family, my friends
    until your journey is done

    this poem was written by Al and I just can’t remember the rest of the verse
    just know I love you and so appreciative that I was fortunate to meet your mom and all of you girls.
    like I said before, some lovely people just crawl right into your heart and that was Ella.
    God bless and comfort all of you
    Al and June Myers
