    Dearest David, Patricia and Janice, there are no words that I can say to take away your emptiness inside and the heartache of losing your mother. I pray that you will have peace in knowing that the celebration of her life on earth will continue to be celebrated with her everlasting life in Heaven. I pray for peace and comfort in the days to follow. I pray you will always have the memories that make you smile and laugh. I loved Aunt Eleanor so much and she touched my life in a way that I will always remember her. It saddens me that she is no longer with us, but it makes me happy that she is with our Lord and Savior. Please take comfort in knowing that you are in my prayers and always in my heart, not just today, but everyday. I love you! Jan
