I have set a date and time for Ellens celebration, which will take place at St.Marys
Catholic Church here in New Orleans. This is a church affiliated with the Father Seelos shrine and so important to Ellen in her final months. It seems most appropriate to hold her service in such a beautiful and sacred place. The service will be held on January 14th at 4:00P.M. with a number of friends and family taking part in the service.
I have appreciated all your thoughtful notes, messages and phone calls. I am doing my best to take care of myself, but as you can imagine, there have been many difficult moments, with many more to come. My good friend Donna will continue to stay here with me for the next week and I am thankful for her company and friendship.
Please continue to keep Ellen and I close to your hearts.
