Ely could make anyone smile and his presence lit up a room. We had a lot of fun at Unschooling conferences and developed a Facebook friendship. We looked forward to seeing him in Ohio this year for the Unschoolers Waterpark Gathering. I am glad that Denise is still planning on coming with her kids.
Ely was someone who was wild, free, happy and naturally spread his love to others. His flare for life was infectious! He was an amazing dancer and fabulous singer.
Ely, I am so grateful to have been your friend. Thank you for the joy you brought into our lives and the lives of others. We will miss you so much!
