So sorry to hear of Eileen,s passing. My husband Jim and I worked with Eileen for many years at the United Cotton Mills and had the pleasure of keeping in touch with her every Christmas with our cards since our move from Newfoundland in 1987. There was always a little note on how our year had gone. I will truly miss her yearly messages.
