My Sister Ellen

Mary Ellen Reed Fuseler
My beautiful, brave sister Ellen died yesterday morning.  She valiantly fought health problems for the last five years and most recently a 15 month struggle with cancer. I will tell you more about her as soon as I can.  For now, I just want you all to know.  This is extremely hard.  I miss her more than I ever imagined.  Please keep us in your prayers, especially her husband Henry, her sons Hank and Joey, and my parents, Joe & Mary Duke Reed.

Visitation will be Tuesday, August 11, 6-8pm at Dunbar Funeral Home on Devine St. here in Columbia.  Memorial Service will be Wednesday, August 12, 3pm at St. Joseph Catholic Church also on Devine St. here in Columbia.
