Ella and ELA

When we lived in Mallorca my wife was given a pink fish-shaped handbag as a birthday present from a friend. We called it Ella (partly after Ella Fishgerald, and partly after Salmon Ella) A few weeks later my wife was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease, which in Spanish is Esclerosis Lateral Amiotrofica, or what they call ELA in short. It seemed a very cruel coincidence as she died of the disease two years later.
