Mary Ellen was one of my favorite people to see. I do a great deal of business at Ad Specialties in Norman where she worked. She always smiled and had nice things to say to me and about others. I never heard a cross word from her mouth. She will truly be missed and I am so sorry for her kids and those little girls. Life isn't fair sometimes, but just remember her goodness and she'll always be with you.
