Eleanor was a long-time friend of my mother, Betty Pickles and was such a very good friend to her when she became ill, taking her for walks and keeping her company. Her doing that meant a lot to us. And Eleanor knit her a bright red sweater which she wore proudly. Eleanor was one of a kind. Our sympathies, Arn, Kathy and Beth Pickles.
