If you remember Ellen1 from the old YA here is an email from Scotty her cousin.
Just to let you know my cousin Ellen died Saturday morning at 5.30am, she hadn't eaten since her mum died and pneumonia set in, I'm devastated as we were like sisters and I'm going to miss her soo much. Can you let everyone know please as I'm in no fit state to do it myself. It's for the best really as she was suffering so much and she told me she wanted to go so i have to keep thinking along these terms.
I am sure all who remember her will all join me in offering your deepest sympathy to her family.
