I knew Ella from the Kidney Center. My husband, Kent Bell passed away on February 6th of this year. He was a patient at the center. I would talk to Ella in the lobby when I was waiting for my husband to finish his treatment. He was on the shift before hers. Condolences to her family. She was such a lovely lady.
