Ethel is one of the most inspirational people I have had the honor to call my friend.
She has taught me how to "Live the Good Life".
I am so very honored to have her call me "friend".
I will carry her words of wisdom with me and pass them on to others
I meet on my journey so that their life’s may be enriched as mine is. 

Hasta que nos encontremos de Nuevo voy a buscar mi algo maravilloso todos los dias.
We will never ever forget you, Ethel and hold you forever in our hearts! 

There are so many wonderful songs, so many wonderful artists...
Lee Ann Womack's "I Hope You Dance" was just on the radio.
It's one of the most beautiful expressions of caring I've ever heard
and I just felt compelled to say, Ethel this is for you, Dance like Betty would!! 

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder 
You get your fill to eat 
But always keep that hunger 
May you never take one single breath for granted 
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed 
I hope you still feel small 
When you stand by the ocean 
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens 
Promise me you'll give faith a fighting chance 

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance 
I hope you dance 

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance 
Never settle for the path of least resistance 
Living might mean taking chances 
But they're worth taking 
Lovin' might be a mistake 
But it's worth making 
Don't let some hell bent heart 
Leave you bitter 
When you come close to selling out 
Reconsider 
Give the heavens above 
More than just a passing glance 

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance 
I hope you dance 
(Time is a real and constant motion always) 
I hope you dance 
(Rolling us along) 
I hope you dance 
(Tell me who) 
I hope you dance 
(Wants to look back on their youth and wonder) 
(Where those years have gone) 

I hope you still feel small 
When you stand by the ocean 
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens 
Promise me you'll give faith a fighting chance 

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance 
Dance 

I hope you dance 
(Time is a real and constant motion always) 
I hope you dance 
(Rolling us along) 
I hope you dance 
(Tell me who) 
(Wants to look back on their youth and wonder) 
I hope you dance 
(Where those years have gone) 

(Tell me who) 
I hope you dance 
(Wants to look back on their youth and wonder) 
(Where those years have gone)
