I had just finished assembling my booth at Comicon this year and went to dinner with my friend Christian Alzmann from ILM, and he told me Ellie Frazetta passed away just a few days ago. I am so sorry for the Frazettas. Ellie was such a lively and kind woman, and so energetic, taking care of Frank and loving her family so much, especially her Grandchildren. Once, I remember her gradchildren burst into the museum and Ellie said with great emotion that "The world is for children"
When I came to visit the Frank and see the museum a few years ago, she took time out of her life to spend a whole day with me in the museum and her home and even gave me dinner! She was also so attentive to Frank's needs and medical issues the whole time. I'm sure Frank would not have recovered so well without her.
In the end she made as much of an impact on me as Frank did. She will be missed by all to be sure.
Best wishes to the Frazetta family.
