Eloise was a loving and beautiful lady. She demonstrated in her life journey how we should walk with our Lord daily. What a legacy! We shall miss her presence with us now but will certainly be a day we shall meet again. Remembering her family and friends in prayer.

My sincerest sympathy to JG (and his wife, Dawn)on the passing of his mother, Eloise.
Eloise loved the Lord and she demonstrated that in her life. Cherish the memories that made her the special mother she was. Rejoice in knowing that she is no longer in pain and is walking the streets of Heaven sharing with others. May God wrap His loving arms around JG, Dawn, and the family and friends now and in the coming days.
