Dear friends, Thank you for joining us on Saturday, November 7th to remember our beloved Mary Ellen, who passed away on October 9th, 2015. We can think of no better way to honour her memory than to invite you into our home to share your recollections and celebrate her life with us. You are welcome to drop by any time between 1PM and 6PM.
In lieu of flowers, please bring your memories of Mary Ellen and any photos/notes/cards/letters you would like to give or share with her family and friends. We also encourage those who are so inclined to make a donation in her honour to Hospice Care Ottawa/May Court Ottawa (where she was cared for during her final days), Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (one of her favoured charities) and/or an organization that reflects the spirit of humanitarianism, love for art and culture, and generosity that Mary Ellen embodied.
Thank you all for being a part of Mary Ellen's life and sharing your heartfelt condolences with us over the last couple of weeks. It has been a difficult time, but your love, care, compassion and company has helped ease our sorrow.
If you are unable to join us on November 7th, please feel free to drop by on Friday early evening (November 6th) or Sunday afternoon (November 8th). We look forward to hearing from you soon.
Rick, Zoe and Michael
