The Man Behind the Woman

By Sarah Ellery

We lost the most amazing man, Brian Ellery, on March 7 this year. Brian would affectionately introduce himself to people as “The Man Behind the Woman”. My loving husband was chatting with me one minute, and the next minute he

wasn’t. Life is so fragile. Brian was always there for My Hope Bag right by my side. He loved meeting new people and always enjoyed talking with anyone associated with breast cancer.

He was friends with everyone he met. And he loved all of the My Hope Bag events and watching me get so excited about how many more warriors we were going to serve. But more than all of that was his devotion to his family. He was a loving husband and an amazing father to three wonderful children and one incredible grandson. To say he is missed is an understatement.

We know he is sharing Dad jokes in Heaven and asking God all of those questions of why life happens as it does that he referenced so many times. Hug your loved ones and let them know how much you love them. Don’t take a day for granted, you never know how many you have. We appreciate and thank you for your notes, thoughtful gifts, and being there to help us carry on without Brian.

We love and miss him very much.
