I wanted to tell you how sorry I am at Eleanor's passing. She was such a special, lovely lady. I hadn't seen her for quite a few years, but have not forgotten the part she played in my growing up. I loved to get into discussions with her and my Dad, they were always very interesting. Eleanor also made our wedding cake when Jerre and I were married, over 54 years ago.
I wish that I could be with you on Saturday, but I have just gotten out of the hospital from major surgery and am unable to attend. My thoughts and prayers will be with you. God Bless!!!
