Tia Eva was one of my Aunts and in my life for my entire life. To me, she was always larger than life. She was a like a sister to my mother Santos Davila Clouse since childhood in Pearsall. I have fond memories of visiting her and her family in Austin and she loved visiting us in whatever state we were living in at the time. Wherever Tia Eva was there were a lot of laughs, music, and good food. She always looked sharp and had a great sense of style that was all her own. I’m blessed that I was in her life. She was truly one-of-a-kind. She lived an amazing life that included a career outside of the home and one in which family meant everything to her. She possessed strength and resilience that was admirable. Our heartfelt condolences to Michelle, Delores, Leonard and your families. May your mother Rest In Peace.

You are at peace now my dear friend. No more pain, pills and all that goes with aging. But My GOD, you left a HUGE imprint on the life's you touched. I find myself actually laughing out loud when I think of the great moments we had raising the girls (all by ourselves) and girl, we did a damn good job. Your sense of humor was unbeatable. You could make a sorry ass situation into a comedy show and I loved every minute I spent in your presence. To feeding the kids spaghetti with weiners (all we could afford) to our auto mechanics class we took together; to seeing you mow your compadre' Moreno's yard because you couldn't stop the lawn mower and you had to make it run out of gas. You lived a great life, even with all the ups & downs. You will be missed but you left a lot behind,.....that beautiful familia…..that wonderful daughter of yours Michelle, is a little you. Rest my friend and see ya later!

The day you left me was the worst day of my life. It's been so hard getting through these past few days without you. I hear your voice. I smell your scent. I see you sitting in your chair.
What gives me some comfort is that I know you are now free of your pain and that you are with those you loved and missed so much. Selfishly I still want you with me. It's always been the 2 of us since as far back as I can remember. We've spent the last years laughing and disagreeing. But we've made memories that will last me a lifetime.
Thank you for being my mom and showing me how to stand up for what was right, even when others disagreed. For loving me the way you did. For loving my babies. For allowing me to make mistakes so I could learn and grow from them. For kicking my butt when you needed to and for never backing down.
It's going to take EVERYTHING in me to get through the days without you, but I'm going to do my best to be strong and make you proud. I promise.
Love you muncho mas Forever & Always
Your baby, Michelle

My mother in law was s handful. She lived everyday to the fullest. Always joking around and laughing. She loved her dogs but was hysterical when she got mad at them. She loved when I turned on the pit. Mama loved her beef ribs, occasionally with a cold Corona or a glass of Red Wine. (which she always reminded us was good for the heart!).
We watched the entire World Series together because she loved baseball. She loved buying football numbers.
She loved playing with the Grandbaby. Watching her interact with the baby and see her eyes light up made everything wonderful.
I'm proud to have been able to see how my wife Michelle cared for her mom unconditionally with full devotion and dedication to fulfill the promise made so many years ago.
Thank you for loving me and guiding me and for being a very important part of my life. I'm going to miss you very much and you'll always be in my heart. I'll take care of Michelle..I love you..

Every time I think of Eva I think about the time she almost burned down St. Patrick’s Cathedral in NYC!! We took a trip there with 11 people and while we were in the church I knelt down to pray and Eva went to light a candle. I heard a commotion in the back of church, turned around in time to see EVA and some others stomping out a fire!!! She didn’t have a match so she had taken paper from her purse, lit it from candle and it went up in flames. Only Eva!!! One of a kind!!
