Dear Marie, Charlene, and family,
We are so sorry to learn of your dear Eleanor's passing. Our daughters describe her as a sweet and spoke spoken lady. This is a lovely picture of your Mom and reminds us just how lucky we've been to have had both Eleanor and Charlie as neighbors. They were an excellent example of a delightful couple and caring parents. Their lives mattered to so many, they loved with a generous and kind heart, and are loved with respect and truly wonderful memories. May their light and energy continue to shine through all of you. We pray that Eleanor and Charlie rest in peace together and that God's blessings bring comfort to all.
With love,
Pat (and Len) Wierzbicki and family
