Here’s a tree in loving memory of a farm girl who loved nature. May many birds find a home in this tree and may many others enjoy its beauty and shade!

Ellen was a kind, loving and generous person and a wonderful mother in law. She was also quite wise. Two of my favorites of her motherly advice was , “ don’t tell everything you know” and “do what’s right for you.” Both had to do with my dealing with a business person that I was questioning what my position should be. I’ll never forget her words . 🥰
