Our condolences to the Huff family. Living next door, we affectionately knew Eleanor as ‘Grandma Huff’. I have fond memories of swimming in her pool and eating cookies on the porch area with Donny. She was very sweet lady, who made a lasting impression on all of us.

My sympathies to the family. Your mom was the kindest, most special person I ever knew. She always made me feel welcomed and made the time to visit every time we came down, no matter how long between visits. She will be missed by a lot of people.
