"I have seen each year as a gift, a travel map, of all I have learned, and all who I have loved, as special places and people, with whom I have left my love and heart. It was a special journey, where I met wonderful friends and, strangers too, passing on their way with a hello and smile. How fortunate I was to be on a path with my loved ones who are traveling still. My final journey is to Tir Na Nog. Celebrate and smile" … Eileen
