I have been blessed to know Ellie and enjoy her friendship. I have so many memories of visits, especially with her family and her brother, Fr. Harry Cain, SJ. I will always treasure our conversations, whether during visits or on the phone. We always ended with good laugh! Ellie was full of love and joy. She will always be in my heart.
