I bought my house next door to Eileen 5 years ago. She was the best neighbor. So sweet. My family and I will miss her tremendously.

Aunt Eileen was one of my mom’s best friends since before I was born, and I always felt like a little bit of my mom was still here as long as I could talk to her. As a kid, I always knew when my mom was on the phone with Aunt Eileen, because they had these silly sing-song voices that they only used with each other. They really enjoyed being together, and they shared a lot of laughs over the years. Aunt Eileen was always very caring toward me when I was little, and I loved to stop by her house on a Saturday with my parents, see her and Uncle Mel, hang out with Mark, even stay for a sleepover once in a while. She always got me birthday presents that were for intended for older kids (my first tape recorder, my first camera, etc.)...definitely the COOL aunt! Later in life, Aunt Eileen loved my wife and kids, too, and we had a blast when she and Uncle Mel would let us stay with them in Mexico Beach all those years ago. Jarred especially remembers fishing and battling pelicans with Uncle Mel very fondly. We miss Aunt Eileen already. Deepest condolences to her wonderful family from the Dimmocks; we’ve always felt like part of your extended family. She was very proud of her family, and she loved you all very much.
