Vol. XX, No. 19 King's Gate Club - a 55+ community, Nokomis, Florida May 17, 2008

CONDOLENCES:   Our deepest sympathy to the family of Ellie Lambiotte, 181 Princess Ave. who passed away on Saturday May 10, 2008.   She leaves her beloved husband Don of 59 years and her children Donald of Charlotte NC, Diane of Fairmont WV, and Denise of Manteo NC.   She also leaves her grandson Jeffrey of Fairmont WV.   Ellie and Don have lived at KGC since 1994.   Miss Ellie as many called her served as chairman of many KGC events.   She was the "pie lady" for the fair many, many years.   She always volunteered to help wherever it was needed.   She loved everybody and her home was open to anyone and she loved KGC especially the pool.   The Southeastern Guide Dogs were dear to her heart.   Her beautiful smile and her loving ways will be missed.   Memorial services were held at the Clubhouse.   Future services will be held in Fairmont WV at a later date.   Memorials may be made to the Southeastern Guide Dogs, Inc. 4210  77th St.  Palmetto FL 34221.

THANK YOU:   The family of Ellie Lambiotte wishes to thank everyone for the telephone calls, cards, food, prayers, visits and support during this difficult time.   The memorial services were just beautiful and will forever be in our hearts.   King's Gate Club is a beautiful place to live and is a bit of Paradise.   Thank you again.   Don, Donnie, Diane, Denise, and Jeff
