Paul, Brent & Gretchen (and the 5 cats and dog),

Sad to hear about Ellen. How full of laughter and life she always was. So many beach and fun memories (yes even the smoothies). Paul and Ellen were a magical duo and all who were within their circle benefitted from that. How lucky she to have Paul and vice versa. She's getting our beach house in Heaven ready for us (one cat per bedroom no doubt). Sending hugs to all. A light has gone out for us. I will donate to my local feline animal shelter in her name and remember her every time I have sand in my toes. With love, Terry Mulherin..
