My beautiful Godmother!! You hold such a special place in my heart, and I have wonderful memories of you to keep with me. I have the angel you made for me in my curio cabinet and the note you wrote me right next to it in a special place. I love you!
Sending all my love to your family, and my deepest sympathy!
Eleanor, such a sweet, fun lady. It was evident, always, how much you loved your family. I cherish the memories of you spending time at our cabin, and I still have the hanging kitchen towels you made me. You will be missed by so many, whom you shared your love, wisdom and humor. You lived a life many of us wish to emulate.
Melissa King says
