Ralph and Family -

Our heartfelt sympathies on the passing of Eileen. Eileen was my assistant at 3M for many years. Her efforts enabled personal and business success for many in our laboratory. She gave of herself in a way that can only be described as professional warmth. Most all that came in contact with her left with positive feelings and memories because she had helped helped them in her own unique way. That characteristic was infectious, and Karen and I will always hold her as a personal and positive influence for us. We often would hear and see her impart that same gift to her family. We hold all of you in our prayers, especially now, and say thanks for allowing us to be friends with many of you through Eileen.
