  2. To Elly’s dear family
    Elly and I were friends since we were six years old. We were three months apart in age. We grew up in Cheverly. Elly was in my wedding. She and Larry were always a part of our lives.
    Our last conversation a month ago was talking about all our memories. We laughed, we cried and ended by saying how Blessed we were to have shared a friendship of life filled with so much love. You will be missed and cherished forever.
