We are, all of us, given such a brief moment of time together, it hardly seems fair. It was my pleasure to have shared some of my moment with this wonderful human being. Peace and comfort to family and friends.

Lori, Charlie, Daniel, the girls and I have been remembering the smiles and laughter of times spent with Aunt Eleanor. She is the only person I have ever met that only had good things to say about all the people and animals in her life. We will miss her, but will always keep her love in our hearts.
