“If there is light in the soul, there will be beauty in the person. If there is beauty in the person there will be harmony in the house. If there is harmony in the house there will be order in the nation. If there is order in the nation, there will be peace in the world.” – Chinese Proverb carried in Eileen’s purse.

A celebration of life to honor Eileen will be announced soon.
