Today

Today, in the first light of dawn, Ellen died in Luke’s arms, with her faithful dogs cuddled up against her.She left us peacefully, with love and dignity.

There will be further posts when we have had more timer to absorb this.

If you would like to visit please wait until 3:30-7:00 today (August 31). Luke needs a little time.

  1. I am glad that you had time together last night and you were there this morning, Luke. I am so glad that you had beautiful years together, skiing, hiking, communing with friend, and traveling – a culture, service, and nature duo. Sending love. Brooke

  7. So very sorry Luke. I was just looking at the picture of her from yesterday sitting on your back porch in the rain and thinking that she looked so peaceful. Ellen truly lived her life to the fullest, with dignity and respect for all living things. She was and will continue to be a treasure in the lives of those who had the fortune to know her. I know you will see her in the nature she so enjoyed and I hope that brings you comfort.

  9. I breathe a sigh of relief that the suffering has finally ended while my heart cries out for more time, better time. But it was not to be and Ellen knew it. So I turn to Nature, as Ellen helped me see, and claim the hummingbird at my feeder as her spirit to greet me this morning and show me she is always here in the beauties of Nature if only I look.
