I have many fond memories of Eileen. These are just a few: being the flower girl in your wedding ( I kept the doll you made for me for years...sorry that I was whinny that day), pizza and cards at your relatives, birthday and Christmas gifting, visiting each other's homes (your dogs and mechanized Christmas ornaments), my graduations and your sprucing up my resume. My mom told many great stories of your childhood together. Thank you for being my godmother. You are loved and missed. We had a good chat last time we saw each other and I am grateful that I could lend a helping hand. Darryl my best memories of you are when we worked at the fish fry together so long ago. My heartfelt condolences and prayers are with you and your family as you deal with this loss.
