    I met Miss. Eula many years ago while I lived at woodcraft square apts. Eula took me under her wings at 1st. We worked puzzles together daily, we sat outside enjoying the beautiful flowers & warm weather, picnics. After I met Eula she became a beautiful friend to me & a grandma figure to my grandson David. She touched my life like no other. When I cooked, I would deliver meals to her a few times a week. I would visit her just to check on her, to make sure she was well. She became an important part in my life, she use to tell me I was so much of a daughter to her… We talked about angels, I guess in a way we were angels in each others life…. In 2014 I married & moved up North to Mikado, Mi. Our friendship continued through phone calls, when my husband & I came to Monroe every 3 months we would stop in & have a surprise visit…. The last time I called Eula, she talked to me about the loss of my 33 year old daughter who passed away on February 25, 2017.. Her words calmed my hurting world. Eula was one of my heavenly angels . I am so happy that her care giver Janie called me while she was at mercy memorial Hosp. She put the phone up to Eula’s ear so I could talk to her, I told Miss. Eula that when she gets tired of fighting, when she was ready to let go, then her Husband and Daughter, would be waiting to welcome her home through heavens gates, that her wings would be ready for her.. I loved Eula, I will miss her kind face, her loving words, her friendship. Another one of my Angels was needed next to God in heaven. My heart hurts for Eula’s entire family, prayers are with all of you.
