I would like to send my sincere condolences to all the family. I had the pleasure of caring for Eleanor. She taught me to play skip bo and we shared a loving feeling for Johnny Reid. She even got me addicted to diamond puzzles and of course Elvis Presley. She was such a pleasure to take care of… which lead to a special relationship that made us family. She will always hold a special place in my heart …. and will be forever missed at Ryan. My sincere condolences to her family. And Eleanor…may you rest in peace…. Until we meet again..forever missed you will be. Xoxoxo
