I knew Eileen during her years at Hope Cottage. She was a joy to know and will be dearly missed. The world's a little colder now without her. She had the sharpest of wits, was full of laughter, jokes, kindness, patience, a thoughtfulness for others, puckish humor and aesthetic sense exhibited everywhere, including in the delightful way she decorated the window to her office. Eileen was a Blessing to others. May she rest in the deepest of peace.
