  1. Friends are flowers that never fade…I’ll always treasure our bright bouquet of fond memories. I’ll truly miss our delightful visits. Peace and love my dear friend. Lynn, thank you for sharing your sweet mother.

  2. Eleanor,
    I was so sorry to hear your daughter call me to tell me you passed away on August 28th, my birthday. I know you are laughing about this right now telling me that God had other plans for you. I was worried when I didn’t hear from you that day. I miss you and our weekly visits! Praying for Linn and the rest of your family.
    Love ya!

  3. I forgot to add on my previous message, my heartfelt condolences to the family. Thinking of you in thought and prayer, especially today during the graveside service.
    Eleanor, I’ll treasure your last words of wisdom to me…”Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do.” 🙂
    I love you!

    • Thank you so much for spending time with my Grandma, and for taking her meals/food. She treasured you and Cathy like daughters.
