My condolences to the Burroughs Family. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I will always remember "kidding" around with Eileen. Mostly
about her vegetable and flower garden.

Eileen & I were in school in Sykesville, Md. I remember her fondly, I asked her to help me with a question I was having a problem with. Eleen was one of the nicest people that I have ever met. I would like to express my deepest sympathy for all of her family. God Bless you.
