  4. Anastasia, my heart is so sad at your Moms passing and I am so sorry for your loss. You asked for memories of your Mom, well I have a lifetime of memories of Ellen, They are all filled with love, laughter and happiness. We knew each other before kindergarten and we always liked each other. When we became teenagers we were part of a group that just enjoyed being young. We went to parties and had parties, we met different people (boys) from different areas of N.J. And just ha d a grand time with everyone.
    Ellen wouldn’t go anywhere without her eye makeup on and it took her so long to put it on perfect ,if we were
    all trying to go some place we would tell your Mom it was 1/2 hour earlier so she would be there on time. OMG we all loved your Mom.
    I will miss her.
