I know I'm late in finding out about the award bestowed on Eleanor Nielsen. She would never be so forward as to brag to her friends about her honor. And it is a very great honor indeed! You could not have found a person more deserving...both for her many, many years of effort, and for her kindness of spirit and love of her fellow Michigan citizens. Thank you for letting Eleanor know that she was highly appreciated!
