  • For many years, our small group of Eleanor, Anne Mascal, my husband Roy, and I would meet for breakfast after church on Sunday morning and in later years for dinner after Mass on Saturday night. Those times together every week cemented a beautiful friendship with Eleanor as she shared her adventures of the week and the proud accomplishments of her children and grandchildren. Eleanor will always have a special place in our hearts.
    With our deepest. sympathy,

  • To the entire Flibotte family, I was just looking back to all the good times my mom, dad & I shared on the 4th of July at your home in Merrymount. It was the first time i lit a bottle rocket which I thought it was a some type of sparkler, only to find out the hard way to let go of it. lol, Also the great time I had going camping back in the early 70’s in your brand new camper, thank *God the park ranger came across Bobby & I with 2 pales of bull frogs from the lake some miles from our campsite, we took a left instead of a right along the way back to camp. Your mom was always so good to my family & I, she had a great smile & loved to laugh. God has a home for good people like your :*mom in heaven. Smile & Peace to all. Bud*
