Tom, How very blessed you are to have had Eileen as your wife & the mother of your children. I remember her fondly from our school days at St Mary’s. Simply put, she was full of goodness and a joy to have known. “One thing I ask of the Lord; this I seek: To dwell in the Lord’s house all the days of my life, to gaze on the Lord’s beauty, to visit his temple.” Psalm27:4 God bless and bring you comfort.

Tom, we were so sorry to hear about Eileen. Leah Gerger told me yesterday while I was talking to her. We had no idea what was even going on and feel bad as there is so few of us left, yet we do not keep in touch. She is up there with your mom and dad and my mom and dad and aunt honey and aunt betty so she is in some really good company. Again please accept our condolences and know that you now have another angel watching over you. Lucille and Larry
