Per Eric on his Facebook page:
"Not too many of you know but my mom has been in a battle against brain cancer for the last 3 months. Last night while I was in Columbus, OH I got a call from my family telling me to get home ASAP because they had to take her to the hospital and she was now on life support. This morning around 3 we had to make the decision to take her off of life support. She passed away at 8:20. Still doesn't seem real. She will be deeply missed."
Ellena will be DEARLY missed.
