Eileen went to school with me and was in one of my classes. We weren't like best friends or anything, I didn't know here that well. But she was a sweet and smart girl. Very pretty and full of life.

Eileen (Bean) was the most beautiful person. Inside & out. Since the day I met her we were instant friends. Always happy, having fun, and smiling. Her smile is what will remain in my heart forever. I hate that this had to happen to you. Especially for your daughter. She will never know the mother that loved her so so much. The mother that gave her own life to protect her precious angel. I love you bean & your family & friends will continue to be your voice. For you & your daughter. Always. RIP my beautiful friend.

Our hearts and prayers go out to Jessie and her entire family. There are no words to comfort the broken heart of a mother. Lean on the Lord for strength and know that we are all here for you. Your whole United family is just a phone call away.

Bean we will always keep u in our hearts... we love and miss u
