So very sorry for your loss. Mrs. Desso was always a kind and caring person. I tried to contact you both when Scot passed but could not reach you. Sorry for his loss as well. Hope you find peace in the good memories that you hold dear.

Ellie and Rufus were fun to be with. Don and I always kept her laughing. As teenagers we were in awe when she and Rufus came roaring in on their motorcycles. A great spirit.

Ellie was my cousin and although we only spent a short amount of time together I knew her as a person who was almost always smiling, always willing to help, a quick wit and who loved life and loved family and extended family. She will be missed.
