  1. To The Ellis Family:
    Sorry to hear of your loss. I have know Al since 1972. We both worked for the State Of Co.
    Al was a wonderful person, a religous man, a very genuine human being, a very good friend of mine.
    Al will be in my thoughts and prayers always.
    God bless all of Al’s family.

  2. To the Ellis Family, I just wanted to leave a short note to let you know that that our thoughts and prayers are with you during this very sad time. May God give you the strength and courage to move forward and to cherish the special memories that Mr. Ellis has left you with. May God Bless you. LeRoy Atencio & Family

  3. Dear Ellis family: I wanted to extend my sympathy to all of you. This is a poor way to do it, but it’s been so long since we were in touch and I have no addresses. I know Alvin will be greatly missed, but what a blessing to be in the presence of the Lord! I have many happy memories of time spent in your home. I will be thinking of you all and praying for God’s comfort for you.

    Love,
    Jill
