    My brother I think about you all the time, the good times growing up. Even when I did not see you very often you were and are always in my heart. I miss you brother. I love you always. Till we meet again RIP. Until then I will keep you in my prayers.
    Love transcends time and I will never forget you or stop loving you till I draw my last breath.

  2. Cousin

    My heartfelt condolences, to Ellis’ immediate family. He very much reminds me of his father, in the given photo, my uncle Emmitt.
    I remember spending time with uncle Emitt and his wife Annie( we called her auntie!) and would go see them when ever we could. I did not grow up knowing Ellis, but heard his name often, spoken about in our family circles. I know he was loved by his family, and I wish him mercies in Jesus’s arms, many hugs ,
    Cousin Mark Daniel, and family,
