I grew up around the block from Eleanor and it was such a joy to reconnect with her again through our parish Holy Family. She was such a thoughtful friend and always asked about my sister Alison and my brother Grant. It was truly an honor to know her and I will keep her and her family in my prayers. My condolences to her family.
