My world (as I'm sure are many others) is just a bit less wonderful today upon hearing of Eunice's passing. I take solace that she has gone to be with her savior. I get to hold onto the fond fond memories of every chance I've had to speak with her - how her smile could warm my heart and remind me that there are those, beyond one's own family, who would always be so glad to see you and could, thus, touch your heart.

"lady" that loved and missed her family very much.It was a blessing to have known her. Debi and George Milakovic

Our Aunt Eunice was a sweet, kind lady with a quick wit and a smile that lit up a room. She will be missed by her family and always in our thoughts. Rest in peace.
