Eleanor loved listening to music and dancing with her Husband Bill on the 82 cruises they took throughout the Caribbean Islands. They enjoyed the many cruises during their twenty years of marriage and loved going to listen to the music in the evenings, winning many dance contests.

Bill was a loving Husband who devoted the years of their marriage to doing everything to make Eleanor happy every minute of their lives together. The last few months of Eleanor's life were spent in Memory Care and Bill spent many hours trying to comfort her, although most of the time she did not realize who he was and where she was but Bill remained by her side.
