Sorry I cannot be there to celebrate Aunt Eleanor's life  with all the family. Just knowing she is celebrating with other family and friends and with the Lord without pain and worry for eternity is a beautiful thing to know and to know she has just relocated from us until such time we also are called Home!! Love her!!
