***During this time of the coronavirus, we are being asked to practice social distancing and limiting the size of gatherings. Some may wish to attend the visitation and not remain for the service; others may wish to join us in prayer at the cemetery; others may just wish to pray for Eileen during this time. We are grateful for all prayers for Eileen, whether in attendance or not. It is an act of Christian love and selflessness to distance ourselves from one another in order to protect those who maybe more vulnerable to this aggressive virus and to help mitigate the spread of the virus.
