Eileen loved her family over all else. Especially the babies! She rocked mine in her rocking chair endlessly. She was a faithful, Christian woman, too. I loved her stories about waking in the middle of the night when hearing angels sing just for her...and other spiritual episodes that she experienced. I loved her smile overall...she had the best smile. She touched many and will be missed by more.
