To Mary Ellen's Family,
For many years, I brought communion to Mary Ellen at the Bennington Health and Rehab. We had some wonderful chats and became good friends.
She had a deep faith and we often prayed together .She had a great sense of humor and we shared a lot of laughs, too. I will miss her. but I know she is in heaven and is praying for all of us.
May God continue to bless all of you and keep you in His loving care.
With warmest sympathy, Phyllis Molloy
