Eleanor was one of my favorite residents that I worked with as an occupational therapist. I moved to MS from LA and just instantly connected with her. I used to bring her sugar free tea packets and gave her a few of my clothes when I cleaned out my closet. I will greatly miss her and wish I could have told her bye. I pray she is resting peacefully and praying for the family.
