Recollection by Steve Ellis: He was a gifted healer, whose practice was spontaneous and natural. A tingling sensation would flow through his arms and hands and he would direct the flow of energy by touch. The effect produced a perceptible shock similar to electricity. My wife can attest to that when she reached out to him for healing and touched his hand, sending a current so strong it made her pull back, as if she were touching a live wire. He wrote many sayings and poems and drew small sketches via imagination. He always had a smile. I remember him saying, I have been able to heal others, but can't heal myself by my own gift. He fought cancer for years, but told me that although he had won many battles, he had not yet won the war. Several weeks before he passed away, he had a premonition that he was not going to pull through, so just incase, he placed a small gift into my hand, as he said goodbye to me for the last time at church.

Memorial: New Jerusalem Church, Boston, Suffolk, MA, Rev. Ellis
Memorial Service: Tuesday, 24 May 2005, 2:00 pm, Torf Synagogue, Washington Street, Chelsea, MA

Remembrance Service: Sun, 12 May 2005, BSNJ, Rev. G. Steven Ellis, officiating "In my Father's House are Many Mansions" (A separate service was held independently at the Jewish Temple where he worshiped) Al died quietly in his sleep at his home, on Saturday, just hours before he had planned to come to his church on Sunday. Al was a regular attendant and joyful celebrant at the church where I pastored. He rarely ever left a Sunday service without sharing how much he enjoyed coming to this church where there was always something inspirational, diverse and spiritually fulfilling. It was altogether fitting and proper to dedicate a Sunday morning service to Al in which we also honored Flag's Day and Feast of Shavuot, an important Jewish holiday ~
