“Eileen had an insatiable need to be needed. She would stop everything to pick up a child or 6 from school often making multiple trips. She loved you more than anyone ever could and made sure you felt it. She never wanted to make a big deal about her birthday but had the best time when you did. She felt every ounce of your pain and would give everything to make it feel better. She shared in all your good times sometimes being more excited than you. She was our heart, our soul, our rock. There's 13 others that have similar stories and feel the same way”.
