Mrs D aka Ellie, you were the best. You and your family invited me into you home so many times. I met them all and there were plenty. You were my biggest fan when I sang " I LOVE THE NIGHTLIFE ", you would play the 45 as soon as I walked in the door. The funniest was Aunty Ginny thought my name was Beverly Bogus for many years. The vacations up at Hampton, the Holidays at your home are many memories I have still, to this day. You will be missed and Im so glad I got to see you at the party Doreen threw for you and Mr D and just stopping in to say hi. RIP Love you Beverly Bogus
