God bless you.
Thank you.



  1. Ellen,

    Am in shock...what shall I wishes and prayers are with you.

    God is with you always.Trying to give you strength in your hour of need. He is right beside you with open arms,grieving for you as his dear child is in need of his kind love.

    I am always here for you Ellen.

    Blessings to you and yours during your time of mourning.


  3. It's shoking...I wish you all the strength in this difficult hour. My deep condolences to you and your family.


  4. Dear Ellen,

    This is extremely shocking. I am so sad and sorry for you. I can understand how it feels to lose someone so close. I lost my father two and half years back and we are still to come to terms with it.

    No words are enough to console you. But the only thing which I can say at this moment is that I pray to God for your husband's kind soul to rest in peace and also to give enough strength to you and your family to overcome this irrepairable loss.

    Being physically far away from you, I can only assure you of my moral support. However, please do not hesitate to let us know if we can be of any use to a dear friend.

    Take Care, dear friend.

  5. oh Ellen... i am so sorry to hear this... may GOD rest his holy soul in peace... may GOD give u enough strength to go on... without HIM... i am so sad to hear this and to believe this...
    oh my dear friend... pl take care...

  6. Hey Ellen,

    How are you doing?

    I know you would be strong through this. Your lovely family would feel the hurt, but with your love and care everything would be fine in time.

    Wishing you and the rest of the family a bright future.

    May your husband find peace in his new journey

  7. Ellen, my prayers are with you and yours during this Christmas Holiday. May God continue to uphold you with His sweet spirit.

    Peace, And Love To You And Yours.
    Blessings, Regina.

  8. To my dear dearest friends...

    Samyukta - Regina - Indrasish - Kamesh - Amit - Phoenix

    thank you for your messages which were such a wonderful source of strength and comfort for me.

    I'm sorry that I couldn't come sooner. Had so many things to attend to. And now that the dust has somewhat settled a bit, I found the courage to come here again and got to see the sweet thoughts you left on this page. Thank you so much. It means the world to me, my dear friends.

    Thank you for your words of comfort and prayers. And Regina, thank you for the Christmas greeting. It felt good seeing it.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS, everybody!
    I pray that our good God pour down upon each one of you the best blessings that could be found in heaven and on earth -- specially for you.

    Thank you for your lovely friendship. Take care please. God bless you and your families, respectively.

    Bye for a bit. Be back soon.


  9. Ellen,

    Today i just came down to see you after such a long time and post my Christmas wishes for you but am bereaved to find such a shocking news at your end.

    My prayers are with you and your family at this hour of your grief , May the Almighty give you the strength and courage to bear the irrepairable / irrevocable loss of your husband. May his soul rest in peace.

    I am there for you always!

  10. My dear friend, Pearl

    How nice to see you here again. Thank you for remembering our friendship.

    With you and the others praying, I know that strength will be mine in helping me carry on. Thank you so much.

    I hope you'll come again and perhaps we could catch up on a lot of things. Meantime, do take care. God bless you and your family.


  11. Looking in to your response and the hour of response i have only one line to express about u today Ellen -
    "Some people make the world a special place to live in, just by being in it"

    twnmplu - May strength and courage always be there for you in abundance!

  12. Now Pearl,

    This time you have succeeded to bring a tear to my eyes. I guess I needed something like that. Your words are beautiful. Thank you so much.

    Believe it or not, I haven't had a good cry all of this time. The tears just won't come, I don't know why. It has nothing to do with being 'strong'. I guess... it has more to do with acceptance. 'Cause what else can I do -- I can't turn back time, can I? Neither would life stop turning for me, it'll go on and I have to decide to move on along with it.

    ...And I will. For my daughters and for me. I will go back to writing again too. I need to do it... got to put back the sunshine into my life someway. Part of it, among other things, are the friends and friendships which warm my days and life.

    I hope that my return will still be warmly received and welcomed here.

    Take care now.
    God bless you and your family.


  13. Ellen,
    I am deeply pained at this cruel turn of event. I pray for you, your family and the departed soul. May God have his blessings on you to bear with this loss. You have shown light to many people through your kind words, empathy and extraordinary wisdom and I wish to tell you that though not physically but emotionally we are all with you in your trying times. only a courageous lady like you could have had the character to take time to inform all of us about this tragedy even in such turbulant phase of your life. May God shower his blessings on you and your family.


  14. Dear JustCurious,

    Your lovely message warms my heart so. It is when good hearts and good people come and send off their messages straight from the heart that helps me cope with the recent loss. I seem to find strength again, hope once more, and be able to face the unknown tomorrows with courage and faith. Nobody knows just how much this means to me.

    Sorrow and grief mustn't stay any longer than it should. There is a time for everything under the sun. And that time is spent and meant to gather back one's perspective and balance, recoup lost energies, and get back on track again with life after a fall or trial. When you have it all in place once more, then it is time to get moving again and continue with your life's journey. That's how I understand these things when it happens.

    So I'm inching my way back one bit at a time... until I am fully there with the world, with family and friends, and with myself.

    How lucky and privileged I am to have you guys for my friends. Funny it may seem but we have proved out to the world that we needn't meet or see each other up close to have and enjoy the beauty of good friendships. We may never even have the chance to meet at all... but in this case, I think hearts speak a better and much more eloquent language.

    May the good Lord preserve our friendships for a long long long time yet. May He pour down from heaven precious blessings so much more than your hearts can hold... not only for yourselves but also for the people you love in your life.

    And to you JC... may God bless your good heart and kind soul and that you continue to be a blessing to many others more wherever life takes you.


  15. My Favourite Pal, My Counsel on earth divine - Ellen

    I agree with all that you have said and can only add -

    Ready or not, some
    day it will all come
    to an end.
    There will be no more
    sunrises, no minutes,
    hours or days.
    It won't matter where you
    came from
    or what side of the tracks
    you lived on
    at the end.
    It won't matter whether
    you were beautiful
    or brilliant.
    Even your gender and
    skin colour will
    be irrelevant.

    What will matter is not
    your success
    but your significance.

    What will matter is not
    what you learned
    but what you taught.
    What will matter is
    every act of
    integrity, compassion
    and courage.
    What will matter is not
    your competence
    but your character.

    What will matter is not
    how many people
    you knew,
    but how many will feel a
    lasting loss when
    your are gone.

    Living a life that
    matters doesn't happen
    by accident.
    It's not a matter of
    circumstance but
    of choice.
    Sleep Well My freind, My prayers are always with you!

  16. My dear dearest Pearl,

    Such comfort your words have brought me. Thank you so much. I will always remember it. In fact, it is now going to my files for safekeeping. :-)

    I would like to say more, but my daughters are pulling me off the computer to be ready for the New Year's mass at the chapel. So I better go. Will send you a message soon.

    Please always take care.
    God bless you and your family.


  17. Dear Ellen,

    My heart felt condolences. Just came by after reading your post on O3 and got to know of this. May God give you the strength to cope with this.

  18. My dear Busybee,

    How wonderful it is to have beautiful hearts come to condole with me and my family in our hour of sorrow and grief. Such comfort and solace it brings me. Thank you!.. most especially for the wish and prayer for God's strength in our need.

    Bless your heart!
