Sharon and Gary, Another missing piece in our heart. Aunt Eileen was so special to all of us in so many different ways. I think that is what is so special, she gives each and everyone of else something special to remember her by. To me she was a favorite. I have so many memories with Uncle Walt and Aunt Eileen. From Uncle Walt picking me up from Ballet to Aunt Eileen cooing us lunches after helping out in the yard on Saturdays. She was the first one to introduce me to acorns!!! Sounds funny I know but, when I was so little and grew up in the country we didn't have acorns!!! I have several pillows and such that she has made me that I will always treasure. In a more resent conversation Aunt Eileen and I had I reminded her about the clay faces she and Uncle Walt brought me back when they had gone to New Orleans. Memories will last forever. Her love for all of us will as well. She is already missed by all of us here. I know one day we will all meet again. Now she is enjoying her next journey with the one's that have left us. No more pain and another angel to watch over us. I love you guys so much. I am always here for you if you need something.
