I met Eileen and Bob years ago at one of the many Oswald and Beuhler family gatherings that I was honoured to be a part of. Dean, Brigitta and all of the family made me feel like I was family. Eileen was kind, welcoming and always with a bright smile. I cherish those memories. Condolences to all of the Oswald family xxx

I will always remember Eileen as a woman of such gentle grace and elegance.Undoubtedl Her smile, smarts and willingness to pitch in whenever needed will be so missed by her Grace family. Her smile and kind greetings after every service were always so graciously and genuinely offered. Thank you for the wonderful slide show put together in her memory. Ron and I are sad to not be able to attend the memorial service. Please know our hearts and prayers are with all of her family. And, Peter, indeed we will support you in you charity ride. God is indeed with all of you, because Eileen wouldn't have it any other way.
