Guest Book & Memories

There are so many wonderful memories of my beautiful Auntie Eileen. Her warm and gentle ways. Her smile and laughter always lit up a room. She had long life experiences and great advice. I miss her deeply. We didn't live close so we didn't see each other often, but when we did it was always a treat and a treasure for me. I am forever grateful for our time together.

My wife Marilyn had a special love for her Aunt Eileen. She particularly enjoyed when people called her Eileen.
She will be missed.
