Your Mom and Grandmother was one of my favorite people in Richmond. We shared a love of the Richmond Library. I loved her sense of humor and the sparkle in eye when she was teasing you. Eileen always made me laugh, but we had some serious conversations too. But clearly her favorite topic was the activities of her grandchildren. May you find comfort in your memories. Thank you for sharing Eileen with community of Richmond. We were blessed to have her in our lives.

Clint, Margaret, and family,
I met your mother once, two weeks ago, and she was a vibrant, spunky 90 year old! God blessed her life with close family and friends...

So many wonderful memories, mostly National Guard events, parades, and dinners. Eileen and Howard were both upstanding and outstanding people together, and in their own right. My parents thought very highly of them. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time. God bless her soul and may she rest in peace.
