    Dear Maynard and Brendan, I give you my heartfelt sympathies for our beloved Eileen. She was such a wonderful friend, one with for whom I have so many beautiful memories. Even though I'm heartbroken over her death, I just know she is where she needs to be and will watch over both of you. Brendan, you still have a loving mother. She will care for you throughout your life. Never forget it. I just found out that you lost dear Pam a few weeks ago. I recall meeting her on a few occasions. She was such a vibrant soul. I pass my sympathies along to Mrs. Brown Love, Donna

    Maynard/Brendan and family: I knew Eileen through our volunteer work with Chi Omega at UNCW and I have great memories of our times together. She gave so much to the chapter and to me personally. I hope your memories will sustain you during this time of sorrow and that they will be everlasting in your hearts. She was a beautiful woman and will be greatly missed.
