“Thank you so much for my package! I absolutely loved it. I can see how much time you take in each package..making sure they are perfect for the moms and dads..it is so appreciated.”
“I was looking through the internet trying to find info. On loss, grief, hurt. And I came across your web page I read the story on Ellie it brought a lot of peace to my heart when I was done reading her story. My story is the youngest of the family which was my brother was killed in very bad car accident recently. It has been very difficult for everyone dealing with his loss especially being the youngest of the bunch. Indeed he was an angel, he was living with my dear mother at home and taking care of her and the things around the house. It has been extremely hard for my mom. I would love more info or to talk to someone just to let it out. I have my moments when I have to be around people at work and I feel like I to have a breakdown. Please keep my family in your prayers. God Bless you and keep you all. Thank You!”
“I loved the care and thought that was put into it, the personalized items, the feeling of love that I got when I opened it. This is one of the most amazing things I have received since my daughter’s passing.”
“I can’t thank you enough for everything! The package was beautifully put together and the necklace was made with such love and I feel like someone really cared about my child. The booklets and journal are very helpful in so many ways. I have read and reread the booklets, they make me feel comfort when nothing seems to make sense. Again I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you have done for myself and other families. I can never repay you for the love and kindness that you are filling this world with.”
“We received a care package when our only two children passed away in a tragic car accident. I wear the beautiful necklace every day and it brings me comfort. This package was such a treasured gift that we were not at all expecting. Thank you founders of Ellie’s Way.”
“There are no words that can ease our deep sorrow at the loss of our dear husband and father. However it strengthens us to realize that your wonderful ministry in memory of your beautiful daughter is close to our hearts. Your support and acts of kindness reflect the Lord’s love. We received our Care Package on my husband’s birthday and we were deeply touched!! The unfailing love of Jesus brings us peace and your compassion comforts us!! We can never thank you enough!”
“The necklace was absolutely beautiful, I can’t thank you enough. Yesterday we held a candlelight vigil to mark the 1 year angelversary of my son. He was murdered and having the necklace to wear was so very comforting. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, I cannot say it enough.”
“Thank you guys so much for my care package! I cannot wait to dive in to the pamphlets and share some sticky notes! I love this idea! I also love the prompts for the journal. I’ve been told journaling helps so much, but I just never know where to start. And I can’t say enough how my heart was touched by the stone and the necklace. I love being able to hold his little image in my hand and/or look down and see his little face looking up at me. You guys are wonderful and amazing and I will remember you and sweet Ellie in my prayers each day.”
“Receiving a care package from Ellie’s Way was a beautiful experience. It really brought me lots of joy and it’s wonderful to see how they honored my wonderful son.”
“I bought this as a Mothers Day gift to myself. I felt it was taking a huge step in my healing process. I love the necklace. It was heavy, just like my heart. It is simple but beautifully made with love and care. I needed it. It finalizes. I miss him dearly. I will cherish it, but not worship it or him. There is life beyond the grave. JESUS CHRIST the True Light by which we are saved. Thank God for Ellie’s Way and for all that they do in making it just a little bit easier.”

“You all are such a blessing. I am so beyond thankful for what you all did for me. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.”
“I do not know how to thank you. Today was a difficult day, full of emotions, sadness and the question of why. Upon arriving home from a crazy day of work and the endless emotional rollercoaster, I now call my norm, I was presented with Ellie’s Care Package. Inside I looked into the most beautiful eyes of a face of an angel, and beside her face I see many keepsakes of my son. Sometimes timing means a lot and today the package arrived in a time I needed it the most. After the insert about Ellie, I thought I was reading the life of my son. It brought tears, but at the same time an overwhelming comfort to see others walking this road and showing so much love kindness and support. Thank you so much, it made a difference!”
“My niece just received her Ellie’s Way box. It is lovely and she was touched by the many wonderful things that were in the box. Thank you for generosity. What a beautiful way to honor your daughter!”

Thank you very much!”
“Loved my memory package! I extremely adore the necklace. Thank you!!!”
“How God works through sweet precious Ellie and her father who has been given a heart to serve. I know that Ellie would be smiling and love overflowing, knowing how others are being comforted, strengthened and encouraged through her huge heart and example to all of us. I pray that as you continue to wholeheartedly seek God and His will for Ellie’s Way, He will transform many more lives in unimaginable ways. With love and gratitude for your family.”

“Thank you thank you so very much for my beautiful package I received it right before Christmas. OMG when I saw the package I cried like a little girl. I LOVED everything inside of it. I cried even more when I saw the necklace and stone with my son’s picture in it. Its unbelievably PRECIOUS and means so very much to me. I don’t know how to thank you enough. I wore my necklace for Christmas day and everyone LOVED and asked where I got it. I told them all how special this organization is. Thank you thank you so very much from the bottom of my HEART.”
“The time you took and to personalize the package with my son’s name was fantastic! It has been 8 months that my son has been gone, but as time goes on, it feels like it gets harder and your package came and renewed some faith in God and gives me some hope! Thank you so much for the time you put into this gift. GOD bless you! I’m so sorry for your own loss of your daughter.”
“I love this. I lost my two kids in a fire in May of 2011. My baby girl was 4 and my baby boy was 2. It was so hard to let them go and it’s still hard now but I try to stay strong since God decided to bless us with another baby 3 months after they went to heaven. People like us that had to lose our babies need support. Thank you. God bless!”
“Thank you so much! Today I received such an amazing gifs honoring my son. It’s been really hard these past months since his passing. Thank you for the memory stone, personalized items with his name, books to cope with his loss, beautiful poems, a diary to write all my feelings, and that it’s okay to cry. Words could not ever express how grateful my family and I are for these gifts. They are a blessing! I love them all. Thank you for all your kind words.”
“The thought of someone caring enough to send me beautiful reminders that she is alive in spirit and that I am not alone was perfect. I cannot thank you enough. There are no words to express my gratitude.”
“I received my Care Package this week and want to thank you so much for putting together this beautiful package. When looking through the items I could not help but cry over the loss of my precious 18 year old son. The personal items are so amazing along with every single item you provided. The books are great, music is wonderful and all the books on heaven I just love! Again as soon as I am back on my feet I plan on paying it forward and donate to this amazing fund. Again, thank you and may God continue to bless you and your work.
