Eileen Summers

On January 2, shortly after noon, after several days with her earthly eyes closed, Eileen Summers’ spiritual eyes were opened to see the heavenly band of angels coming to escort her thru the gates of pearl to see her Lord Jesus and to her new heavenly home with no more pain and no more mental anguish of the dementia that she had suffered with for 12 years. She had been a resident of Greentree Memory Care in Mount Vernon for the last seven years of her life.
