    To the Strother Family,
    So sorry to hear about Eloise. I have so many wonderful memories with her and John. I live back on Heatherwood and pass the old house daily. I remember what a cheerful person she was (until John did something wrong). I loved playing golf with her and having lunch at Heatherdowns. I know she will be missed dearly.
    Thinking of you.
