My long time friend, John, how sad we are that you have lost your dear Eleanor. Over the years, we have enjoyed communicating with Eleanor via emails. She sent over some of the most fascinating and historical ones I've ever received. Though she and I never met, I feel like I have lost a friend. There are no words to comfort you but perhaps knowing that others are thinking of you at this very difficult time will help in some small way.
