  3. To the Bradley family
    I was saddened to hear about your loss of Eila.
    I had the pleasure of knowing her, through her time as manager at the Carlson Wagonlit Travel Northlands branch. She was a Consummate Professional and a pleasure to be around. I still have the Bravo! (employee recognition program), on my wall she had emailed me for helping her staff at Northland.
    She will be greatly missed. My condolences and prayers go out to you, her family and friends at this time of loss.
