Post a Condolence

Dear Debbie and Brad, Eleanor was my “other mother” when we moved to Illinois. She saved my sanity on many occasions when crying babies were overwhelming me. It seemed like she always knew just when to knock on the door and come to my rescue. She was the best “grandma” to the three children, always remembering their birthdays, and every holiday. When the boys got older, she was even able to make it to some of their football games. She never had a harsh word or raised voice. God blessed her with special mothering abilities, and we will try to continue in her example, and cherish her memory forever.
