My condolences to the family. Eleanor was my friend, a forever friend who I only saw for a few short months in my life. Eleanor left her fingerprint on my heart, on my soul, and it will never be erased. She will never be forgotten by me. She was part of my "God Squad", that helped me in my family's time of need. Eleanor would laugh to hear that term, my "God Squad".
