Condolence: We are so sad about Ellen's passing. We all have many memories of growing up together on Railroad St. All the times we laughed and cried over the years. Shared stories of our kids and family and of course the devilish things we could get into. She will always be close at heart and never forgotten.
Condolence: We wish there was something that would help with the pain. When I told your mother she had cancer, she said that nobody lived long with that diagnosis.I always thought of Ellen as a friend,not just a patient. IF there was any activity going on in Mt Jewett, she and Roxie were sure to be there. In a world where everyone seems to be self absorbed, your mother definitely was more concerned about others than herself. She also was very proud of her family. She loved you all. If there is anything we can do to help, let us know.Linda and Denis Rettger
Condolence: My condolences to the Forsyth families. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of dear Ellen. Some Bible scriptures that have helped me during times of loss include Isaiah 26:19 and Psalm 37:28,29 which states in part: "Your dead ones will live...They will rise up". And the Bible also says "The righteous themselves will imherit the earth, and they will forever reside upon it". Therefore the Bible promises that we may be reunited with our loved ones lost in death by means of an earthly resurrection. This is further confirmed by John 5:28,29 which says "Do not marvel at this because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". This is possible thanks to Jesus Christ's ransom sacrifice. Thus we have a genuine hope of everlasting life in a world without wickedness or suffering.
