I wish to express my sincerest condolences to the family of Eileen Dickson. She was a beautiful, godly lady who always had a special glow about her. May you take consolation in that she is now with the two loves of her life (Jesus and her husband), and walking streets of gold. May God's grace and presence surround you today and in the days to come. I wish I could be there.
Blessings, CC

Words can not express the sadness I feel due to the passing of your wonderful Mom and Grammie. Eileen had a special place in her heart for all of you and her Lord. We had so many meaningful talks together while I was working at MSCH and still continued to visit after I retired. She will be missed so much but will be with each of you every moment of your life. God gave all of us who knew Eileen a precious gift. SHEENA
