Condolence & Memory Journal


It was a joy knowing Eileen. When you were in her presence, she gave you her undivided attention. It was a joy listening to her stories, as she shared the glories of her work at church. Her witness as a child of God was enlightening and you left her with a smile as you witnessed the rays of sunshine in her face. I will miss our conversations. She always remembered to ask about family members and shared in the joys and sent prayers for the trying times. She will be dearly missed and carried forever in my heart. Condolences to her family as she enters into God's presence.

I'm so happy you chose this photo! It was taken at the Christmas luncheon Muriel, Debbie, and I host. We were sharing stories of each other and having a good time. We were all laughing and she turned and smiled at me. This is the image of Eileen I'll carry in my heart.

Jane, I am so sad to hear of your Mom passing. My only contact with her was the day you were supposed to start working in the Library/LRC TV area. You were ill and she called asking that you would not be fired for missing your starting day. That was very kind of her and I have never forgotten her love for you. Peace and Grace of the Lord be with you, Chip, and family during this time. Bruce
