Ellis and Terri may be gone, but memories of our long and dear friendship live on. Our memories started when we met in Ft Bragg where Ellis and I were in the Army Special Forces. It was there that the four of us started a friendship sharing hot dogs and baked beans and think of it every time we eat them! Miles, and different states separated us but every time we visited whether it was here in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Missouri or Florida we always picked up where we left off...laughter and more memories!! Our dear and special years of almost 50 years we miss you both and cherish the friendship we shared. To Jeff, Cris and families our deepest and most sincere sympathy. Much love, Chuck and Dolly Thompson

Our hearts are broken, with Ellis passing. We had so many fun years with our Dutchland woods group (Five families) who lived in the neighborhood as our children grew up, and have remained like one BIG family over these many years. Half are now gone, but none will ever be forgotten, we had a Special time and place there and it will always bring happy thoughts in our heart ! We love you Chris and Jeff and our best to your families, so sorry we could not be there! Donna and Denny Rose
