    My deepest sympathy to Sam, Stacy and Mike. I have fond memories of Eleanor
    from our days at JMHS, and the fun times we had at weekend
    pajama parties. In later years I remember seeing Sam, Eleanor and Mike at the
    Swiss Chalet on Sundays, or at Critics. It is unfortunate that over time we get busy with our lives and we don’t connect as often as we used to. May our loving God hold you in His arms during this difficult time and may He grant you His peace.
    My deepest sympathy to each of you.

    So very sorry for your loss. Our prayers are with you. I was a classmate of Eleanor at JMHS. When i heard the news, I looked through our yearbook and was immediately reminded of what I remembered most about her, her charming smile and warm personality. I’m heartened to know that her family is her legacy. Peace, friends.

    So sorry for the loss of ‘Mrs.Joy’. My daughter and nephews had the pleasure of knowing her thru the SGD program at St.Joseph’s. She was always smiling and so sweet to our kids. I have fond memories of her on the floor playing/reading to the kids. She will be greatly missed. Prayers for you all:)
