To Ella Jo's family, my prayer is that God and Jesus are so very close holding and comforting you in their loving hearts during this time and in the days ahead. Even though our journeys took us miles apart most of our lives, she will always be a very dear friend to me in the time we shared during our childhood years in our school, Adam Bethel Church of God, and neighborhood and homes. So many memories flood my heart as we grew up together of so much joy experienced. God has a wonderful angel added to Heaven. She will be missed very much but leaves a great legacy. Sincerely Alice Turnbough Scott
