    I am so sorry to find out about Ellen’s passing. She was such a kind and generous person and always seemed to be able to smile. Please know that I am thinking of you John, Reet and Helen.

    Auntie Ellen was always a ray of sunshine when my grandma (Lillian) would bring my siblings and I out to the family farm;She would greet us will a big warm smile followed with and big hug. I also remember the family reunions and meeting all the aunts, uncles, and the hundreds of cousins. But I must say the Buckler family sure know how to have the best time when gathering together. Auntie Ellen you will be sadly missed but will always be in my heart. You have earned your angel wings.

    Love you always,

    Kim Graham-Kruisenga
