Our love and sympathy to the Deleon family. We have known Elinor for 25 years and our family has been enriched because of Elinor and Vic. They have left us with wonderful memories. Without any doubt Elinor was so kind and loving to Maddie and Petey but shared that love and kindness with our whole family. Through them we were also blessed in knowing Chris, Vera, Vincente and Eric. Through their kindness two families got to know each other. We will be forever grateful. I also shared a passion with Elinor besides my grandchildren...AC. We would laugh because we loved going , and never WON. Rest In Peace my will be missed.

Elinor, it is really hard to accept that you are gone and will never hear your voice anymore. We’ve been friends for a long long time and I still remember when we used to work at the bank, during lunch time we go to your Telex room, share our foods, story of our family, secrets etc.
When we migrated to U.S & Canada friendship and communication still continued.
I will forever miss you.
