Ellen, who went from my child bride to the mother of two outstanding children, is a woman who fought an unwavering battle against Ovarian Cancer. I pray her efforts will bring more attention to this horrendous monster so that others may be spared the pain that this disease caused her and those who loved her.

Rest In Peace….Tom Pelli

I knew you better then anyone. It was my honor to be with you for sixteen years. We had many good times and a few battles because of my big mouth when I did not respect nor deserve. When I close my eyes I think of what a strong person you where. You read about a certain doll class in Denver and for the next two weekends you flew there. You joined a doll club in Maryland and once a month we drove there and came back the same day. Being married to you was a great adventure. You were so Beautiful, careing, loving and creative. When you entered a room eyeryone would stop and look, you were pure class. When I call your name and there is no answer the tears fall. I can never get over the eyes and arms that held me. Stand by your man, you did all the time I was sick, thank you. When I think of you I cry and go to pieces. I will love you forever, there will never be another you. I hope you are now at peace. God is in your drivers seat.
Love you forever
Your husband – Frank
