We want to extend our sincere sympathy and friendship to each and everyone of you. We’re thinking of you at this time and wishing you comfort among your family and many friends.

Eleanor was “mom” to alot of us kids as we were growing up. Her door was always open and the oven was soon to yield something yummy. Eleanor was always watching over us and never let us want for anything. She will be remembered for her quick smile and whit. She loved each of you dearly and was so proud of everything each one of you had accomplished. She is with God now and is holding Harold’s hand as they watch over all of you. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. God’s Peace and healing love keep you strong for each other.

Love always.
