Many thanks to everyone who attended Ella's memorial service, or sent their condolences.

The program for the service is available here.

Here are the texts of (most of) the speaker's remarks:

Denise Brown, director of the Montclair High School Dance Company where Ella danced all through High School, dedicated this year's performance to Ella - see the dedication in the program.

The Macalester Theatre and Dance Department Spring Concert Program also dedicated the performance to Ella, and donated proceeds to her fund.

I remember when I first moved to Montclair, you were the first person I met. You let me sit next to you in Ms. Steinbach's English class in CGI. You invited me to have lunch with you and your friends, these people, in the art room in the basement of Montclair High School.

And that's how we ended up being friends, and how I ended up being friends with everyone here.

Ella was always bringing us together, and still is.
