Eleanor has been a special aunt since I can remember. She taught me how to make her crochet dish scrubbers and handles for dish cloths. Thank you for taking the time, I still make these items. You will be greatly missed Aunt Eleanor! Our prayers and thoughts are with you all, Uncle Vernon and Ruthann! We love you!

Please accept my words of sympathy regarding the loss of your loved one. May your beautiful memories of happy times spent together comfort you as we look forward to the fulfillment of God's promise of life without end, in perfect health, on a peaceful earth along with our resurrected loved ones, and death will be no more. John 5:28: "... all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out ". Psalm 37:29 “The righteous will possess the earth, And they will live forever on it“. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.
