We first met Ken and Eleanor in the early 70's at the Fort Wayne Street Rod Assn. We were friends instantly. Lee and Ken lover of cars and Eleanor and I lovers of our husbands. We enjoyed going to car shows and the Nationals. Eleanor was always fun to be around laughing and joking, never a dull moment with her. Old friendships are irreplaceable, we loved her and will miss her.
