"Oh, the fascinating stories Eileen had to tell of her childhood days in the Canadian Prairie town of Saskatoon,Province of Saskatchewan.  And if that were not magical enough (per Mark Twain) ,Eileen enjoyed telling about the one-room schoolhouse where her father was the principal.   Her many grand nieces and nephews (whom she loved and who clearly loved her) could easily get her to tell about the little 4-room house provided by the school district within sight of the school and which had one wind-powered electric light.  All for the Kenny family of the parents and five children.
I met Eileen after we both turned 80 ;  her friendly nature was evident; she taught me all the family names so I could join in the family games  And Oh, the competitive spirit in those games.;with her sisters,  with the children and by us as a team at the local Bridge Club
We married in  2009 and continued a very pleasant life traveling and visiting until 2013 when it was clear that we were both entering separate terminal phases of our lives    Neither one could take care of the other; we separated so as  to not be a problem to each other"

"May God hold you in the Palm of His Hand and give you peace and happiness in His Kingdom.  I was thankful for the two weeks I spent with you in April at the Country Care Hospital.  Time was running out for you Eileen, but your courage to face your sickness was not easy for a person who took care of herself for so many years.  We will all miss you at the family gatherings for your helpful nature.  June 24th was our Father's Birthday so you only missed it by one day to celebrate with him in Heaven with our dear Mother, sister Marg, Bill and Lou.  May God Bless all of you.  Good Bye, Good Luck and God Bless you all."
