"While starting out in the restaurant business Miss Ella was my mentor at both Brennan's French Quarter and Commander's Palace .
Since then back in the late 70's I was always reflecting back on Miss Ella's tutoring and wisdom as I opened and operated 11 restaurants and could never had done it without the teachings of Miss Ella and the Brennan family .
My prayers and wishes for Peace and Comfort at this time to the entire family .
"Ti, I never had the opportunity to meet your Mother but in looking and the pictures and reading the memorials I realized how much you look like her in so many ways. That beautiful smile that lights up your face when you are greeting people and I believe the same personality and strength. I am happy to know you for these many years and send you my heartfelt sympathy for the loss of your Mother and I hope you receive comfort in the love of so many for you and Miss Ella."
Thank you for all the good times and wonderful memories you have given myself and anyone else who has had the pleasure of dining at Commander's. While the restaurant will continue to operate, it will always be missing a little something......you and your infectious spirit!!!
You will be missed here, but the memories you have afforded us will live in our hearts forever. We love you Miss Ella.......rest now in God's loving arms. :-)"
