Offering my condolences to Eleanor's family at this time. I've been good friends with Tracy and have known her family for almost 20 years, Devon and Kenzie are like a nephew and niece to me. Eleanor experienced a wonderful life with loving family and friends to share it with. Know that the ones we love never truly leave us and are close to us always.
