Howard and Lou Ella were married almost 50 years and extended arms of love to many ministers in their area. An award winning florist, Howard and Lou Ella owned and operated Burchfield Flowers in Biloxi, Mississippi for more than 20 years. One of Howard's greatest joys was to decorate and design beautiful floral arrangements. In the late 1970s he set out a change in his career to work in the hotel tourism industry, where he began to work at the Holiday Inn Beachfront Resort in Biloxi. He successfully worked there over 25 years. He served in various management capacities, ultimately becoming an Assistant General Manager. During his career in the hotel tourism industry, he was awarded the prestigious award of "Inn Keeper of the Year". He shared his talent of creative floral design with the Holiday Inn and continued his excellent reputation through his beautiful floral displays. People would travel especially at Christmas time to the Holiday Inn to view his work of artistry. He was greatly loved by his family and his colleagues.
