Sending my deepest sympathies to my cousins at the loss of their Mom and Grandma. One of my favorite memories was Aunt Eyleen singing in church. She loved the old hymns and could rock the rafters when she got going. Eyleen had the best laugh. Her laugh was genuine and came all the way from her toes. I will miss you Aunt Eyleen.
