Eleanor and Don have been like grandparents to me since I started working for them in 2013. Eleanor was one of my favorite clients to work with. I always enjoyed my time spent with them, and enjoyed catching up with them while visiting. Eleanor will always hold a special place in my heart. I know that we will meet again one day, sweet Eleanor.

To Don and family, You have our deepest sympathy in the loss of your wife and mother of your sons. I have many good memories of Eleanor especially at band functions and camp. She was a kind and lovely lady. I was aware of her health issues. Life for her has not ended, just changed. Those who live in the Lord never see each other for the last time. So take care of each other. and may time heal your hearts.
Sincerely, Jim & Jeanette Belvo

I am so sorry to hear of your beloved wife's death. Those many, many years of happy marriage prove your love for each other and for many others too. May she rest in peace in the arms of our Lord. I saw the notice in Bill Setchell's FTD/NASIC newsletter. Take care and thanks for all that you have done for our family way back when!

I loved my time working with Eleanor and getting to know her family. We shared many stories and laughs and kept up on the nations news! Eleanor and Don were often the highlight of my work week. To this day my family still enjoys the chili recipe they shared. Love you and will miss you, but know you are in a better place.

Don and Family,
I am sorry to hear about Eleanor Jane. She was a special person. I will be thinking of all of you.
My brother Jim has just passed away and I will not be able to make it to viewing or funeral.
I am so glad I was able to be at her Dad's funeral and got to see Eleanor Jane at that time.
