The Ellers were a huge influence in my teen years and it was amazing to remember how hundreds of Findlay students always appreciated ‘MA’ Eller

Mrs. Eller, as I knew her growing up always had a special smile whether I saw her at church or school. That same smile was there in a visit three years back. All the family has been special in our lives. God bless you all through this time of separation.
