Eileen loved good food and socializing. We will miss her because her attitude could change the essence of a whole room whenever she was in it. She had a wonderful smile that could light up a room. Love has no boundaries. While Eileen is no longer physically with us, her spirit is always around us. Those who love us never go away!
You toiled so hard for those
You said goodbye to none,
Your spirit flew before we knew,
Your work on earth was done.
We miss you now,
our hearts are sore,
As time goes by we miss you more.
Your loving smile, your gentle face:
No one can fill your vacant place.
Your life was love and labor.
Your love for your family true.
You did the best for all of us.
We will always remember you.
