Our deepest condolences go out to Frank, Fred and their families. Ella and Lloyd have been close friends to our family since 1972. Ella had such a nice disposition and a perfect sense of humor to compliment Lloyd. Ella and my Mom, Emily, enjoyed many seasons of golf and bowling together. Ella was more like family to all of us and will be missed. Our thoughts are with the Gildersleeve Families during this time.

Tom and Kathy Kwarciak
