Karen and I just want to express our deepest condolences to the family. We have been neighbors in West Hampton since 1995. I do not have my father physically living with me, he is 87, but he is in a nearby assisted living facility and I know the effort it takes to care for a loved one who is not able to take care of themselves.

We want to wish the family all the best, and know that Our Lord will take good care of those who we loose on this earth.

I taught Dale and knew Darryl when I taught school at Marietta High School. These twins were fine boys. They were very polite, and always respectful to me. This was a direct result of the upbringing of their loving mother , Mrs. Lucille Ellis.

I remember many times when my dear friend, (Mrs. Edna Lee) would call Mrs Ellis and transport her and any other of the children to watch Dale play basketball.

Dale bought his mother a house, and as fate would have it , he lives directly in front of me! As Mrs. Ellis' health worsened, Dale moved home from Seattle to take care of her. I would see this huge (tall) man pick his mother up into his arms, place her into his truck and take her to her doctor appointments! My heart would hurt , but it would be so proud of how much a son loves and cares for his mother. Isn't that a beautiful sight?

I know for a fact--My student, My good friend (Dale Ellis )--took excellent care of his mother. Good job Dale, you were a good son. I am so proud of the man you grew up to be!! Donna
