Ella Mae was a lot of help to me in my research on the Heck Family with her trust and knowledge on the family history. Richard and I hope you find peace knowing she is in a better place. May she rest in peace. Judy Heck

Macy and family -

Your family is in my thoughts and prayers as you honor your Grandma's life. I saw how great her legacy has been by watching Macy interact with her. May you find peace and comfort in the days ahead. Much love being sent your way.
