Thinking of the Aldous family. We were neighbors. Mrs. Aldous helped me with my sewing, always had those large boxes of chips and sandwiches from the Schwann truck, which my mom would never allow, and was always kind when I came over to play with Marsha. Rest In Peace and we are thinking about you Tommy, Bob and Gail and the rest of the Aldous family.

Tom- our family is very sorry to hear about Eleanor. She was a very lovely lady. I used to love to run into both of you so her and I could pick on you. We still have the family tree that she gave our son John at the diner a long time ago that tells how we are related to her. I never knew we were until she made the family tree. That was very kind of her. Thinking of you at this difficult time.

Tom, very sorry to hear about Eleanor's passing, the both of you were very good to me both as friends and people who showed interest in me and my horses when I was just beginning with them in the North Country many years ago.

Please let me know of anything I might do for you at this time or at any time in the future, you certainly helped me in every way possible at anytime that I asked for something or needed assistance

Uncle Tom and Family,

I am sad to say goodbye to a wonderful lady who impacted my life, mostly with her love but also with her humor and wisdom.
I will never forget Aunt Eleanor, I love her and miss her and I know she is with Marsha watching over me and all of us.
