I’ll think of our exercising in the pool in the early morning with the girls and you,;your remarks will never be forgotten . Plus the many hours of canasta we played together: Judy, Sylvia, Bert, Marian at my house and the Skolnick Center, you were quite a gal! So glad we were friends, love you

My cousin Eileen taught me to blow bubble gum. It was many years ago and the skill persists. RIP cousin.

Eileen was a wonderful person
I only knew her for a short 2 years
She called me one day and said. “Hey I heard you play canasta. Want to play in our group?”
I did for a while and every time I did I was greeted with a big smile and a welcome attitude from her
I will truly miss her warm smile and the big hello I received every time I entered the Center. My prayers are with you
