Heaven has received another ANGEL that is just a feisty, fiery, spunky, loving, kind, empathetic and beautiful person all wrapped into one. GOD really knew what he was doing when he made you MOM and I know that GOD is holding you now in his arms with such pride. Those qualities above I mentioned are just a few of the wonderful things that were wrapped up into your 4’-11” little frame for which you definitely made up for with the heart of a GIANT. I had the extreme privilege of calling you my MOM, FRIEND and my children GRANDMA. I know you’re around and watching over us already as you always worried about us and everyone that you loved. I see glimpses of you in me, my sister and my children that already bring a smile to my face. You always called me nicknames like Precious or Keithie to name a few which I could take some heat for growing up but I liked it when you did anyway. But the word precious hits me already even more now that you’re gone as you always referred to me, my family and your grandkids as just that….PRECIOUS and just like you are to me. I read a quote the other day that said “A son’s first true love is his mother” and that hit me deep inside…because you sure were mine❤️.

❤️you MOM…I will ALWAYS, NOW and FOREVER…your PRECIOUS Son…Keith

My dear sister, Eileen (my best friend)….I am so sad with the loss of my big sister and best friend. No one could ever say a bad thing about you. You were the most loving, kind, and loyal person that I knew. I am so proud to have had you for my sister. We had our coffee together every morning, no matter where we were. Also, at night, we would say “goodnight” to each other at 12 o’clock. A lot of fun times and also sad, but we always had each other to talk to. My sister Eileen, may you rest in peace. You are gone from earth, but will never be forgotten. I will love and miss you every day and my heart will ache for you always. Until we meet again, my sister, my best friend. Love you always. <3 Sister, Sue

Sweet Eileen I will miss our calls and chats, and our laughs . I will miss you calling me “my precious cousin” . I will remember all of our “ precious” memories ( our ride back from Boston when I think you thought I was totally nuts) soo many great memories of my life were with you and all the family. You were the kindest sweetest woman who always was worried and concerned about all of your family. Watch over us all and rest easy . Till we meet again Yolanda

To Eileen’s precious family~ It was a gift to be around Eileen. I first met her at Friends After Diagnosis when she was volunteering her time stuffing envelopes-a boring and tedious task but she did it with joy knowing she was making a difference. Her loving spirit, spunk, kindness and generosity was inspirational. Although we didn’t know each other well, I feel honored to have known her. She will be missed.
May GOD comfort each of you with HIS peace. With love, suzy
