    Dear family, I am saddened by the grief that you are feeling. Knowing of God's embracing love for you, continue looking to him when he " will wipe all tears from our eyes, death, pain, and suffering will be no more. " - Revelation 21:3,4 He says death is an " enemy that will be brought to nothing. " - 1 Corinthians 15:26 It comforts our hearts to know this pain will be a thing of the past and through Christ a resurrection for our loved ones. love from a stranger, [email protected]

    Was so sorry to hear of her passing! Worked with Ms Eleanor for many many years at the Richlands Post Office. She was such a joy and made me sometimes laugh out loud at some of our conversations. She will be truly missed!! Lois
