    My beautiful baby girl…more than my niece. I love you to the moon and back. You always told me you loved me and I said love you more. You were the brightest light in my life. I know Billy and Grandma met you to welcome you home. You already sent us a sign that you are with Billy. You went to Heaven at 5:26, Billy died on 5/26. Let him know we got the message that you are together. Please come to us in our dreams and watch over “Mommy and Daddy”. We will welcome the day when we are reunited with you and Billy and everyone who was with you on your journey to Heaven. I love you more and will miss you forever my sweet, beautiful and kind Eileen xoxo

    I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. I am a nurse myself and a recipient of the Billy Deighan scholarship from my time at Annunciation many years ago. Your family has touched my life in such a special way. I hope you know that Eileen’s work as a nurse has touched a countless number of lives and find peace and joy in knowing how many people your beautiful daughter and son have helped.

    Dear Little “I”,
    You deserved so much more life than was afforded you. My heart breaks that your life was cut short, and my only solace is knowing that your brother Billy and Grandma McGrath were there with open arms waiting to bring you into heaven. May your soul be at peace and may you bring comfort to your mom and dad, whom I am certain are beyond devastated. I can’t even fathom the pain they must be feeling. Please help them to go on, and to feel you in their lives still.

    Please know, you are missed. You are loved. May God Bless you and keep you always!

    My sweet Lil I….. my heart is broken into a million pieces. If prayers could’ve saved you, you would have lived forever.

    I am struggling so much trying to understand how you could be taken from us, it is just so hard to accept. You are the sun, the moon and the stars, not only to your mom and dad, but to Aunt Marge, Uncle Danny, Aunt Bridge and all your cousins who just adored you. So, every time I see the sun, the moon or the stars I am going to take a moment, think of you, my beautiful cuz, and smile knowing that you are watching over us. I love you my cuz xoxoxoxoxoxoxox

    Terribly sorry to hear of Eileen’s passing. Such a beautiful soul. Absolute sweetest girl to everyone. Eileen went to MRHS and Concordia just as I did, but it wasn’t until college did I really get to see her personality fully through a mutual friend. Eileen was forthcoming about our connection through MRHS the first time we crossed paths on the Concordia campus, and it drew an immediate line to such an important bond. I was very proud to hear of her successfully becoming a nurse at “the cord” and representing a success story for our alma mater. I feel so blessed to have been a small part of her life and overjoyed that she touched so many lives with her bright light. We will miss her dearly. Sending love and strength to everyone as we help Eileen enter God’s house and all the days following. Happy Nurse’s Day sweet angel.
