An Inspiration has passed away.

ellen mccoy
My grandmother Ellen McCoy has passed away and has most of the running world in shock. I don't think she liked British Rock, maybe The Beatles. But she sure loved to dance, go on very long walks, and of course run marathons(set a few records). Ellen loved to dance to Polka, which my Grandpa has on everyday at Noon. Instead I will give you a song that will be played at the service today in St. Paul, "What A Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong.

Everyone is welcome at the service today April 15th from 1-2pm tom. along with the visitation. Details of the service listed below.

Wulff Funeral Home
1485 White Bear Ave.
St. Paul MN

Here is a link to the Guest book for anyone who would like to send their condolences or cannot make the service.

Adele set for full American tour!!!!!


Adele a.k.a Adele Laurie Blue Adkins is turning into the new Queen of Soul. Adele's style and vocals look like they could hit America by storm. She does sound a lot like Amy Winehouse but I think her voice is much stronger. Ms. Adkins will set sail for her first full American tour supporting her new album 19. She's played in California and New York already, and unfortunately had to cancel her SXSW shows after getting sick.
