In Kathleen's words:
"Eileen is giving. She's my best friend and over the years, our friendship has grown and evolved in so many ways. She's very aware of other peoples feelings and her first priority is always making everyone else feel comfortable. Now that she's married and has her own family, I find myself missing how we used to share everything and just be giddy teenagers... But when we get to sing on stage it's like we're kids again. We usually stay up way too late, talking in our hotel room after shows... eating candy. :P"

In John's words:
"Eileen is the heart of this band, you could say. Everyone contributes in their own way; Eileen brings the joy. She also is somehow the most organized. When we have to be somewhere or make a deadline, Eileen is on the ball. She's almost another manager for us. As the spokesperson for the group, she makes sure we are all at our best, whether it's bringing Timmy's over or making sure we have our set lists printed up. She is kind and thoughtful, and may have THE cutest baby on the planet."
