    Eleanor has been a good friend for so many years. From 42nd st. oyster bar to my visit with her at Laurels. I never saw her when she did not look beautiful with hair, makeup and nails flawlessly done. She was always encouraging and appreciative. She loved her family. I will certainly miss her. My sincere respect to her family.
