What an extraordinary woman and doctor!
Eileen will be so sadly missed by so many of us. I came to count on her for her wisdom, expertise, interest, involvement and care. She was a genuine healer, in the very best sense of the idea. She was present, focused and interested in each of us, cared how we were doing, tried her very best to help, and went the extra mile to be sure we were cared for. I hope she had others doing that for her, as she grew closer to the end of her time. I am so grateful that I had time with her and gained from being a very small part of her world.
Our community will never close the gap caused by her dying, but she stands as a truly wonderful person, one who gave so much more than she took. May we learn from her and help others as she did.
