Eileen was a beautiful person inside and out. She always had a smile on her face. Towards the end when I went over Donna's to sit with her, she was always so happy to see me. We would sit there holding hands watching tv. I think it gave her comfort, I know it did for me. Eileen you're in a much better place now. I hope you have peace, love and are free from all pain. Love you.
