Eloise your lovely smile and conversation will be missed! You were one of the first people to welcome me in the family when we came to NC. The Great-Aunt of my husband Shannon, you were also known as Aunt Weezer to our family and kids. You were always so giving, and if we came to visit, you would never let us leave empty-handed. Your love for plants rubbed off on me and you taught me how to plant from trimmings, you are always thought of when each plant blooms every year. Your lovely crocheted potholders are still in use too, so talented. You were also a good doggie and cat Mama, and there's something to say about someone who loves animals so much! We love you Eloise, and know you're at peace in heaven:)
Thinking of you Deborah, so good of you to help her get settled near you these last years, glad she was able to be close to you! You're in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Shannon, Gina, Legend, and Marley McCourry
