I loved living next door to Eileen and Ken. When my youngest was napping, the baby monitor reached all the way to her kitchen, so I could sit and have tea with her and listen to her wisdom and stories. I learned how to be a good wife and patient mom with help from her. She was a beautiful person.

My goodness...its been years since I have seen Mrs. Dawley...but I still have fond memories of eating cookies and milk at her house when I was a kid and we lived next door to her! Such an amazing woman! I will always remember her for her kindness and good heart.
