  1. Our sympathies to Amy and Michael and Ellens family. We have many fond memories of Ellen which warm our hearts. God Bless her and grant her peace.

  2. Dear Michael and Amy and all my Cody Family,
    Ellen holds a very special place in my heart. My mom Barbara had no sisters, but her cousins, Ellen and Mary, stepped in and the three of them have a wonderful bond of sisterhood. Ellen is no longer inhibited by her earthly body and is free to sing songs to our Redeemer Jesus. I will be praying for the comfort of the Holy Spirit to be very real to you all. With much love, Mary

  3. Ellen was a second Mother to me. The sweetest.
    Sending my thoughts to Amy and Mike.
    With sympathy,
    Karen Standing

  5. Our condolences to Michael and Amy and all the family. Ellen was a sweet, delightful lady. I will miss her. May she rest in peace.

  6. I’m am deeply saddened with Ellen’s passing but know she joins Franks loving arms in heaven.

May Mike and Amy find joy and love in their memories of Ellen. Love and peace to you all as we send our deepest sympathies for your loss. May the Lord Jesus bless and keep you!
