I am so sorry for your loss but Eleanor is in a much better place with Ronnie and her extended family. I was lucky to have your mother and grandmother as one of my aunts. Over the years growing up we had a lot of good times and many laughs. Eleanor was a kind, loving and giving soul. When my mother was ill Eleanor was always there to help her and for that I will be ever grateful. She and Ronnie always saw the positive and humorous side of things. She will be great missed by me.
