Maryellen was a godsend and a blessing to me. She was special. A few days after Jackie passed away, right after the Christmas holidays, Ray and I had to pack up and stay with Bob. We knew we had only until April to resettle him. Our main mission was to find a Home Health Aid to come in daily. We almost gave up when along came this bubbly Irish-looking gal, resembling Jackie. Not only were we able to leave in time to do our income taxes, but we also had peace of mind knowing Bob would be well taken care of. Well...most of you know the rest of the story. Maryellen and I were on the phone once a week, sometimes twice. She and Bob were there for me when I lost Ray. Later, I was able to share my sorrow with Maryellen when we lost Big Brother Bob. I certainly never expected to have Maryellen beat me to that final destination, but one day we will all be there together, fishing and eating shrimp. For now, I will miss not being able to talk to Maryellen on the phone once a week. As I said, she was special.

By chance you came into my father's life, and gave him a twinkle in his eyes and a smile on his face. In reality, you brought out the best in him and he in turn brought out the very best in you. The two of you were constantly going places, not letting moss grow under your feet. You certainly enjoyed one another's company. Maryellen, you were a kind and gentle person mixed with lots of Irish humor. I will miss you tremendously and forever hold a soft spot in my heart for you. Love Robert C. Hellermann Jr.
We are blessed to have the time we had
to get to know her .
I know she was Really HAPPY when
she and Bob finally said they were getting
married . I could see it long before they
did !! Boy what a pair !! They made me
laugh , she could get him to listen to her
and would use that quick sense of humor !
He Loved it and they Loved each other !!
I was so Happy for the both of them !!!
And I could sleep at nite I knew Bob was
WELL taken care of !!
I enjoyed the fishing trips , Bob really
enjoyed showing Maryellen and us his
favorite fishing holes . She would pack a
wonderful lunch or we would stop at their
favorite rest. On the water . She was the best
at making sure Bob was OK. And believe
me he was OK with her Those two would
get out and go , but as long as Maryellen
was with him everything was Good !!
I enjoyed making crab cakes and sending
them over for her and u know she would
always put a Thank You card or note on
the door . That's just how she was !!
I look outside my friend looking for you
walking the dog , then I remember you are
gone BUT I have you in my Heart and Head
I know you and Bob are laughing it up together
again and that my friend makes me Smile .
I will remember our long talks on the dock
and sharing this Wonderful view we are so
lucky to have here on the River ! I will
remember your smile your laugh and your
overall caring self. I will remember you!!
And I Thank You for being You !!!!
Rest in Peace my Friend until we meet
Love Always ,

Kindness,good humor and generosity were your hallmarks;a light was snuffed out.
