Condolence & Memory Journal

Recently we received our Christmas Card to John and Eileen back marked unable to deliver as addressed. So I went to the Internet and put John's name in and back came a hit' for Eileen's Obituary. What a sad shock! She was one of my favorite people when I worked at Moore's HQ in Glenview. Eileen exuded caring, interest and understanding whenever I talked with her. After we had moved back to Denver I heard that they were getting married and it seemed like all was well in the universe. Then, for many years, they proved (when we were in contact with them at Christmas) that they had made a wonderful decision and that Life was very Good for them.

I'd like to send my condolences to Eileen's family for this tremendous loss and to express my appreciation for being allowed to get to know and appreciate Eileen. What a wonderful person she was. She complimented John and made him an even better person than he was before.

If possible, I'd be in your debt if someone in the family (or family-circle), could put me in touch with John as he was one of the finest people that we met while in Illinois and I don't wish to lose track of him. Thank you very much in advance!

My sincerest condolences for your loss and my greatest appreciation for your help in reconnecting with an old pal, John!
