  1. I used to work at CMHIP with Eileen. I enjoyed talking to her about many different things. She was very nice to me, very caring, offering advice. She will be missed. I’d like to express my deepest sympathy to her family.

  2. Uncle Jim and Family:
    Our deepest sympathy for your tragic loss. We will keep
    you all foremost in our thoughts and prayers.
