Fiercely loving and loyal, smart as a whip, strong and ever so elegant. Eileen or as she and I referred to her, “Mom 2” proved that being family doesn't have to be blood because she made sure she treated me just like family and that is exactly what she was to me. She truly was one of a kind, she was my family and I will always love her.

Verna and I are saddened by her passing. We had many fond memories of Chris and her during their visits to Georgia and during the our visit to to the headquarters in 2001. God has a great addition to his kingdom.
