Eileen was a dear Aunt who I will truly miss. She kept my connection to her fabulous band of brothers and sisters. She had so many stories of her parents, siblings, children, grandchildren and great grandchildren to share. I loved her WWII stories as a nurse. A life well lived. I know she will be met in heaven by many open arms. God Bless her family.

Please accept my sincere sympathy in the loss of your loved one. I hope Jesus' words as found at John 11:25 will bring you comfort. He promises that 'those who exercise faith, even though they die, will come to life.'
