    Our deepest sympathy to you and your family. We enjoyed meetings with Elinor and her dolls. I had the opportunity to see her in the hosital and was glad to see her so upbeat regardless of her weakness.

    Our club sent a contribution to the Endowment Fund of the United Federation of Doll Clubs in Elinor’s name.

    She is missed!
