Suzanne & Family - Moms are such special people. I'm so very sorry for the loss of such an important person in your lives. My thoughts are with you and your family at this difficult time. Mary Rivers

I met Ellen 37 years ago when she hired me (a forenic accountant) to work with her law firm in an accounting malpractice case. We won the case and I enjoyed every minute working with her and learning how the law interfaced with accounting and auditing standards. She was a gifted lawyer, outstanding teacher, and a wonderful human being. The legal profession lost one of its stars.

Dear Harry, Susie, and Jim,
I am Janet Klein's sister. I have many fond memories of your Mother. She and Janet were so close. I remember Janet coming up to be with her post back surgery. It is so devastating that they both had such short lives.
Your Mom had a distinctive voice that I can still hear. She was a generous and loving woman. My thoughts go out to you and your families. It's amazing that you all created 7 granddaughters. What a wonderful legacy.
Take care,
