    Dear Charlie, Nada & Keith, I’m so sorry about Eloise passing. She was such a spitfire! I always admired her determination, strength & appreciation for the good in her life, despite the obstacles she faced every day. What a blessing to have such a fun, caring, tough girl in your lives. I was so proud to hear about her ballroom dancing dance competition in June. I know she enjoyed her grand-kids so much was so proud of her kids, talking about your accomplishments, etc. I could tell that she loved you all very much. Even dragging Charlie to my Pilates class was one of her many acts of love. I miss her smiling face & her dry sense of humor. All of you & Eloise are in my thoughts & prayers. Take good care of yourselves & each other. Thank you for sharing Eloise with me. Love, Aggie, Personal Trainer, Granite Fitness

    To the family of sweet Eloise, I extend my deepest sympathy and condolences. Though I know she will live on in your hearts and her spirit will always be with you and watching over you, I know this is a particularly difficult time. Eloise & I went to school together in Denton, she a year ahead of me. Later, after I moved away and then came back, when I did go to Denton, she and I usually got together for a coffee and a visit. We have been in touch during the relocation to WA, and what grace, spirit and determination she demonstrated. She was so grateful to have such a supportive husband and to be near family and to spend every moment she could with those grandchildren she adored and of whom she was so proud. I am honored she was my friend. I will never forget her many kindnesses to me and her grace in living. She will live on in my memory and heart, too. God Bless you all.
