    Eleanor was a dear friend of mine. We shared the same birthday month so, I treated her to Red Lobster 1 year and AppleBees the next year. We really connected after I was a widow and she gave me so, much hope and inspiration not to give up but, embrace life with all your heart and soul.
    RIP my friend until we meet again!!!!

    We were blessed to know Eleanor when she lived in Aneta, ND. She was a member of my Bible Study group and was always sharing her knowledge and wisdom with us. Blessed be her memory.
