Eulah is a simply dear and amazing woman who was kissed by Roosevelt as a child and met luminaries that included Arthur Godfrey and Henry Ford.
But my experiences of Eulah are those of delicious visits with good conversations; sitting with my cousins on the beach as she, her husband Bill, and our parents went back and forth on their float boat, laughing uproariously; and listening to her delightful stories that she tells in an enchanting and engaging way.
Eulah’s summer house is separated from mine by a wooded lot, on which huckleberries grow. As a child, picking these berries for my mother was a torment (do you know how tiny huckleberries are?) But as an adult, I’ll collect what I can each summer and make what I call “Eulahberry Bread” using the tiny Eulahberries in a delicious blueberry bread recipe.
Eulah loves to dance, and while she was the last to arrive at her own party, she didn’t hesitate to take to the dance floor! (Her partner’s suit was more shiny than it appears in the photo – that’s NOT my camera problem!)
As for me, I was delighted to just give her a hug and wish her the best!
