So very sorry to hear about Eloise. I am so grateful for the wonderful visit I had with her at the lake in August. She was a dear women and a wonderful mother and grandmother. We will miss her as a neighbor and friend. May the Lord comfort you in this time of sorrow.

Eloise was a good friend and a sweet lady. We had some great times at the lake house and here at the NC coast. We will keep her smile in our hearts. May her memory be a blessing.
