Ms Eloise, what a special lady. She was a good friend to many including my mother. I will always remember her laugh. She enjoyed the children at Enon so much. She made a loving and lasting impression on me.

I am so sorry to hear about Weezie. She was such a sweet lady. She went on many bus tours with my sister, mother, and I over the years. She was Dad's nurse when he was in Granville Hospital many years ago. Such a lovely lady.

Weesie was such a sweet and loving lady, we had a great time together in Ridgeway Cottage at Murdoch Center, everybody she met, she made a friend and loved everybody and always would give you a big hug. I can hear her coming down the hallway now pushing that cart to give out medicine to the clients. I know God has called another angel home. Fond memories will continue in my heart of her always. God be with you through this difficult times.

Weesie, I will miss you, just as everyone else will. I am so glad that I got to see you recently at Brantwood. Heaven is your home now, say hello to Ruby and Christine for me, I am sure you all are catching up on all the news. God Bless the family of this wonderful lady.

We will surely miss Eloise with her hearty, joyous laugh and her friendliness toward everyone. It was an honor to, along with others, care for her in the past 6 years. Pat and Joe, you've been most compassionate caregivers. You will be blessed as you have blessed her and our staff. Eloise had a personality as large as her caring heart and left us with many memories to cherish. She is surely resting in the arms of the angels.

I remember when you married my Granddad when I was little and you told us to call you Weesie. That name stuck. Good bye Weesie!

Ms. Eloise will always hold a special place in my heart. She was my Sunday School teacher at Stovall Baptist Church when I was a child. She was there for me when my dad died when I was only 11. I also still have a silver dollar she gave me because of my perfect attendance year after year. Rest in Peace my dear sweet lady. You will be missed but never forgotten.

I remember Eloise when I was a child growing up at Stovall Baptist Church, she was always so nice to me, she taught me in Sunday School. Every time I saw her after I grew up she always hugged me, I will never forget her and that sweet smile she always had on her face. She was such a wonderful Christian person. Rest in peace sweet lady--- until we meet again.
