goodbye, sweet friend


My dear, dear friend, Ellen, has left this world after a short but hard fight with pancreatic cancer. She was one of the strongest, most ballsy person I knew. Kind, generous, so very loyal, and funny. She loved animals and would protect them with all of her abilities. If she saw something that wasn't quite 'right', she would be the first one to speak up and stand up for this injustice. On the other hand, she was soft and sweet. So loving. So gentle. We shared so many, many laughs and so many adventures.

I hope Jeff and your beloved dogs, Mary-anne and Sparkles and your crabby cat, Barney, are there to greet you wherever you now are....and that wherever that is has many men in tight jeans with cowboy boots, my friend. I love you. Thank you for your friendship and your light, Marshm_ellen. You made the world here a better place while you shared it with us.

I am so sorry about your dear friend. My father passed away 3 years ago from pancreatic cancer.
She looks like an awesome lady!
