Eileen and I were classmates, graduating from St. Paul’s Hospital. In later years we traveled to the Middle East and Europe. We have kept in touch over the years and she visited me in Miami. I always looked forward to seeing her when I visited Vernon. I will miss her wonderful smile and cheerful personality!
My heartfelt sympathy to her family and friends.
