There were 3 of us....Beryl, Beverly and Eileen...who found each other in elementary school, continued that friendship thru junior high and high school and beyond. Beverly went home to be with the lord and then there were 2. Now you have gone Home and there is just one left but I am left with lovely gifts of laughter and joyous memories of both of you. I shall miss you much. Say hello to Bev when you see her and give her a hug for me. Till we meet, Eileen.
