    Ray, Rhonda, Randall, Rose, Jerrid, Raeletta, and Jonathon so sorry to hear of Eileen, she will be missed so much by all who knew her. You and all who knew her have so many memories of her, I have so many great memories right from as soon as you guys moved to Pangman to right up to the last time we were out in Kelowna and stayed with you guys. She always had a smile for everyone she was close to and she was close to so many. She was just like a second mom to me and truly we will all miss her although I know none of us will miss her as much as all of you. Stay close to each other at this time as you will all need to be strong, she is not suffering any more and you will all meet later on in a better place where no one is in pain. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
