So sorry for your loss. Eileen was a wonderful friend and a delight to be around. We have fond memories of the dinners and visits we shared through the years. She loved life and will be missed.

Scott and family: I was fortunate to encounter Scott at work. I met his wife a few times, one during a snow storm in Houston, where I got stuck and Scott and Eileen took me in their home for the night.
I will always have fond memories of that overnight stay.
Last March, we had dinner with Scott and Eileen in Kema. We had a great dinner.
No words can express our sorrow.
Scott: we hope to see you soon. Come to visit old friends in Longview.
