    I am so glad I got to know Elly over the past few years after I moved to Buckeye and started attending Grace Fellowship Church. She loved to attend Bible Studies and Sunday School, and her enthusiasm for making friends and her dedication to digging into the Word were such a blessing to all who knew her. So grateful she is with her Jesus now! My condolences to Monica and the family for the loss of her presence for a while.
