Dear Sally, I’m so sorry for your loss. ZZ was so much larger than life that she will live on forever in those who knew her. Our heartfelt sympathy from all of the Ellison family.

I don’t know if you remember me, I am Dr. Darryl Dias’ Medical Assistant. Something came across my desk today that had Zilphia’s name on it and it made me wonder how things were. So needless to say I found this when looking her up. I enjoyed her very much, as did Dr. Dias. We wanted to send our thoughts and let you know she was on our hearts.

Dear Sally: I knew your mother from volunteering with the NO Symphony. She was a great mentor and we had a wonderful time together. I often wondered about her after Katrina. I have no doubt she is entertaining the Lord in Heaven. I’ve missed her many times through the years. My thoughts and prayers are with you, but I know ZZ wouldn’t want us crying.

Sorry for your loss Sally, you don’t know me but I knew your mother from the time she was in her 20’s as a friend of my sister Phyllis Knight Peralta. My sister & another friend & I were talking about ‘Zippy’, as we knew her, on Tuesday, wondering where she was. Little did we know she was with the Lord. May God Bless you.
