I wish to extend my deepest sympathies to the Colter family. I had the pleasure to know Eloise for years, from Letchworth Family Medicine as well as her working for the AMBA Wellness services where she would update me on Ben. Know that her love still shines down upon you, and she is still with you in spirit, as well as memories. I pray that all of you find strength in this difficult time. I bestow my sincerest condolences to all.

Dear Family, Please accept my condolences on the loss of your mother. I worked with her at Letchworth Family Medicine in the 80’s and continued to know her for the years that she worked there. She was a great nurse, had a great spirit and a wonderful sense of humor. We were always laughing. She could be a bit of prankster too! I think we all were! WE saw each other in Walmart a few months ago. It was such a surprise and nice to chat a bit and catch up. RIP now Eloise, you did your job here on earth very well. 😊

I am extremely sorry to hear of Eloise’s passing.  We had some great conversations that almost always centered on her grandkids, who she was quite proud of.  Allow the good time stories to help with your grief.  Take care!
