I am lighting this candle for Eileen to carry with her on her eternal journey.
The path from our house across the alley to Eileen's house over the past 19 years has become a well-beaten path. We will miss her stories of childhood and working at St. Austin's school. We are grateful for the love and friendship we have shared, as that is what life is all about. We will especially miss taking care of Girl Friend, Frisco, and Frankie the cat. We are grateful to Sue and Jennifer for the inclusion as care providers during Eileen's struggle. They really made us feel like family and we are humbled. Our neighborhood just wont be the same now that Mrs. H is gone.
May this candle burn forever with God's love for you.
I miss you so much!!!!
She was a angel here on earth and mom to many of the neighbor kids. She loved singing in the choir. May god watch over her!!!
The path across the alley from our house to Eileen's house was a well-worn path. We will miss her calls; taking care of Girl Friend, Frisco, and Frankie the cat; and most of all the visits to chat. Eileen was the most non-judgemental person we have ever met. She welcomed friends with open arms and always had a solution for any problem. The stories of her childhood were often told and she was thrilled to share them. Thomas Avenue will not be the same. We will miss her terribly.
Rest in peace Eileen. You will be missed
She was a very amazing women. Her strong will is what kept her going. She will be missed.
Rest in peace Eileen you be missed by many. As a kid growing up on Thomas Ave. I always felt like I had a "Guardian Angel" living right across the street, Eileen always kept an eye out for me. Patrick as she like to call me, never by my more popular nickname always Patrick. Like the time she rescued a little 6 year old kid that locked himself out of his house in his PJ"s in the middle of winter. (not sure if I ever thanked you for that one) I do know I owe a lot of thanks to this very special woman for being a friend that always had a wore a smile and welcomed you with open arms. R.I.P Eileen Love and Respect Always...Patrick
