Please accept my condolences, I have not met the family personally however I was very sorry to read that Ellis Sutton fell asleep in death. When death separates family members, such great loss can result in deep sorrow. Life is so tender, so fragile, so very precious. Ellis Sutton has no doubt left behind a thousand moments that will live in your heart forever. Remember that "God is our refuge and strength" (Psalm 46:1). Praying for you and your family during this time Be Strengthened, Blessed & Encouraged

Ms. Minnie, we send prayers for your grief from this day forward. May the Holy Spirit keep you in His peace! Grieving is actually a show of faith in a sense. What we know is God does not always do immediately what humans think, feel or see. But, what we do know is He is nearer than we think, whisper God's name and listen. No matter how long or short the shock is, we pray you experience the peace of God always, "Semperfi".
