  1. I am saddened to hear of the loss of Eleanor. I met her about 25 years ago through a client of mine who purchased property in Otis. We socialized for a long while and met up frequently in Lee for shopping or coffee. I still have a piece of her art work given to me when I gave her my easel and a supply of paints and brushes. She was a talented lady. My warmest condolences go to her family at this time.

  2. Please accept my apologies for being so late in expressing my deepest sympathies to you, Ms. Altrows’ family on behalf of the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged & Infirm, sponsors of Mount Carmel Care Center. While I didn’t know her well I did meet her on my visits to Mount Carmel. She and you her family are in my prayers and the prayers of all the Carmelite Sisters.
