I’m so sad to read about your mom’s passing and sad for how you all must be feeling.
Eleanor was a beloved friend who I looked forward to seeing and sharing many mornings chatting with
at Gerould’s deli. Attending her 100th birthday luncheon was a very special time and remembrance.
Love and Blessings, Rosemary Thompson

I remember so well Eleanor's 100th birthday bash and how much she enjoyed seeing all her family and friends. I will cherish the memories of her in Supreme professional, so proper, so attractive....such a gracious lady. She was true "lady" and friend.
