I am so sorry to hear about your mom Darlys. I remember when we were small how she always watched out for us playing. She will be greatly missed. I await the day I will get to see her in heaven and give her a big hug. The family is most definitely in my thoughts and prayers at this time as always. I remember so much of my young childhood with her as a big part of it. Welcome home to heaven Eileen, you are certainly loved and treasured by many more than you could have ever known.
I discovered a photo of Eileen standing by a large display of Christmas cards and it seemed a definitive thing about her. Don said that every day she wrote at least one letter, She loved keeping in contact with her family and friends. Many of the family and friends mentioned that she never forgot their birthdays and always wrote a personal note to them in her Christmas cards. The priest spoke on Isaiah 44 where the Bible states God's word will not return to Him void, without accomplishing what He sent it out to do. In the sermon he stated that Eileen was a person of words and accomplished her connection with family and friends. She was loved by so many people and enjoyed counting the cards people sent to her on special occasions. It's lovely to have those tangible reminders of her.
Rest in peace Eileen. we will remember the many good times we had with you when you lived in the little house in Whittier, you always had a smile and a hug to welcome us. you will be sorely missed, but I know you're up in heaven visiting with everyone!
To all of Eileen's friends and family, my heart goes out to you during this difficult time. Rest in Peace Great Aunt Eileen.
Rest in peace Eileen. Have so many great memories of the good times we had. Tell Betty Boop "Hi"
