Not sure what to say?

so many pictures - both in my memories and in my scrapbooks - of Eileen! It's still hard to believe she's not at the end of the telephone or computer. Good times in high school, Scotland, Ireland, Holy Island, Europe - memories that can never have Eileen removed from them. Remembering you with laughter as well as peaceful moments, Eileen -

Thoughts and prayers for your family.. at this time of loss.. Right now, I'm still dealing with the loss of both my parents.. after 2 years.. of loss. Continuing to think of you at the holidays and during these difficult times.

I'm so sorry your mom passed away. Her life was so full of accomplishments. She was so young. Take comfort in our creators promise of a day when death is no more and those who did good come back.

I was so sorry to hear this news. I enjoyed learning to know Eileen and appreciated her strength and energy for life. Blessings to all of you as you celebrate her life and grieve her passing.

For My Iona Friend,

God be with thee in every pass
Jesus be with thee on every hill
Spirit be with thee on every stream,
Headland and ridge and lawn;

Each sea and land, each moor and meadow,
Each lying down, each rising up,
In the trough of the waves, on the crest of the billows.
Each step of the journey thou goest.

I´m so sorry for your lost. Eileen was a woman full of life and energy. I remember her kindness and her beautiful smile. May God comfort your hearts and give you peace. Eileen we will miss you.

Eileen was a fun classmate, roommate, traveling companion and friend. Her delight for life and the world around her has now extended to a new world. Travel with joy, Eileen!

May your hearts be filled with wonderful memories of times you spent with Eileen. She loved life, and she lived it well.
We will miss her.
