Celebrating the life of Grover Dale Ellis
Thank you for signing Grover Dale Ellis's Guestbook
Well Grover, we met in 1971 as coworkers, and worked together until you retired. You were my supervisor much of that time, but we never had a cross word between us. We helped each other often, but you lifted me up many more times than I could help you. Your humor, quick wit, and friendship will not be forgotten.

Sorry to hear of the loss of such a dear friend and family member. Times like these can be hard but it is of great encouragement to think of the wonderful promise the Bible holds for all mankind at Isaiah 25:8, which says "8 He will swallow up death forever,And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces. The reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth." What a wonderful day that will be! Again, I offer my sincere condolences and hope this will help you when feeling down.

My love to all of you on the loss of such a great grandfather. He will be missed as much by me as Grandma Mary is. I will keep you in my heart, Grandpa, forever.
