I can't remember a time before I knew Eileen. She's is part of some of my favorite childhood memories. We always went trick or treating with her boys and had so much fun. So many great memories of playing with her kids, their dogs, and just having fun no matter what we were doing. She was always a sweet and kind soul who loved to laugh. I'm so glad that she and my dad were able to reconnect and enjoy their time together over the last 3 years. She will be missed, but we will no doubt meet again. God bless her soul.
