  1. Dearest Albert and Family, On behalf of the entire Frank Acevedo Jr. family we would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to you all. We were so sad to hear of Eileen’s illness and now the sad news of her death. We believe though that she is with the Lord and that her last breath here was her first breath in heaven. She has no more pain but is happy in the presence of Jesus and her loved ones that have gone before her. We know that we will see her again one day and that she is waiting for that happy reunion when she sees her beloved husband and family again. We hope that the Lord will comfort you and your boys and the whole family and that His peace and love will be with you always. God bless you and yours, Maggie

  2. Dear Banda and Gutierrez Family: Sorry for the loss of your mother, sister, aunt, wife. May the Lord be your strength during this most difficult time. Our most heartfelt sympathy is with you and your family. Eileen was a wonderful person everytime that we saw her she always made us feel like we were a part of her family, she was always so welcoming when we were in her home or even if we ran into her someplace like the store or McDonalds or anywhere – she was a very warm and loving person – you all were very blessed to have her in your lives. Cherish the memories always! Kathy, Art, Artie, Esther, Ben we love you and you are also in our prayers! Once again may the Lord be with you during this time.
