Dear Diane, Ronnie and family - I last reconnected with Ella during a Harland Kelm visit in June, 2012. The other comment from her caregiver touched me, as we are all so blessed our loved ones "talked" to us until the Father called them Home. There were so many Zeise's, I was especially blessed Ella was able to help me get it straight. They cared. Please know we share your loss, but know Ella, my mom Edna, her sister Ella, Harland and Mertis and all the rest....are still serving all the chicken salad they can eat! Ella "made a difference!" Love, Sandy and daughters (oldest Laura Weippert, lives in Aurora, maybe we can get together my next visit!) I'm trying to arrange attending the funeral tomorrow as well.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time of loss. I work at St. Lucas and took care of Ella. She was a wonderful person and always had a lot to say. She will be greatly missed.
