    Eleanor was a very special person. She had a warm and caring nature which drew people to her. She had smile that lit up the room. Our youngest grand daughter age 3 1/2 is her namesake. Our sincere sympathy to Andy, Jim, Brenda, David and their families.

    My mum and I met Mrs. Bell when I was just five years old and David and I were going to the same speech therapist. She was an important part of my childhood. Even though I haven’t actually seen her in many years my mum (Marjorie Bond) kept me up to date on all the family’s goings-on and of the many grandchildren and great-grandchildren who Mrs. Bell was so proud of. I’m so sorry to hear of her passing and send my condolences to the entire family.

    My thoughts are with you Andy at this time, I last talked to you both at Mom’s funeral in Rosemont. Eleanor & Mom (Ruth Swaffield) were very good friends growing up in Hockley. They will have a lot of catching up to do. Take care Andy!
