Dr. Black is so grateful to God for her Christian parents, grandparents and
great-grandparents. She is the mother of 3 great children. Elisabeth is 26, mother to
Tyson Christopher. Benjamin, 23, is the athletic trainer at Liberty Christian Academy in
Lynchburg. Ben and and his wife, Autum, are expecting a son in May 2008. Christopher,
Benjamin's twin brother, has been playing ball on heaven's courts since fall of
2001. While the loss of a child defies description, the blessing of Christopher for 17
1/2 years is eternal. God is gracious to send two little Christophers as Ellen's
first grandchildren. 

Ellen is partial to good coffee, good friends, reading, and fishing. She dreams of all
four someday at a fishing cabin on the North Platte River in Wyoming or on the Gulkana
River in the interior of Alaska.
