Dear Otto Family,
I met Ella when I moved to Annandale nearly 20 years ago. She was active in Fellowship club at Zion, and was also a member at Pioneer Park. We talked about how Mr. Otto and Mr. Shadduck were such good friends and everyone worked at the Park. She was so welcoming and friendly to me. Ella was a beautiful Christian lady, and I just feel so honored to have known her. My deepest sympathies to all of you.
God's Love, Cheri Antl
