Aunt Eleanor was a remarkable lady. I remember going to her and Uncle Bill’s house. Always had fun with them. I became alot closer with Aunt Eleanor in the last few years over the phone since the passing of my father . We have had lots of great conversations together. She made me laugh. I will miss calling and hearing her voice that made me feel closer to dad. I love you Aunt Eleanor.
