Mary Ellen "May" Morris Caywood
Birth: Mar. 21, 1919
Fort Worth
Tarrant County
Texas, USA
Death: Nov. 10, 1967
Springtown
Parker County
Texas, USA

May Ellen Morris/Caywood was shot four times by her husband, Melvin James Caywood, while working at the Midway cafe (the one shot that was fatal went though part of her heart). There is now a different business where the Midway cafe was located at La Junta, Texas - midway between Springtown and Azle on highway 199 (that goes through Azle to Fort Worth, Texas).

Ellen's story hasn't ended, because her children and grandchildren are still living it. The ink of time has blotted out the severe pain of her tragic death. However, time flowing throughout eternity can never erase the treasure of love she gave to each of her children and grandchildren.

If roses grow in heaven, Lord, please pick a bunch for me, Place them in my mother's arms, And tell her they're from me.
