Since my husband and I met Eva through her music from Radio 2
Terry Wogan , she has been with us through the years , she was at the start of our life together and will be at our end. We absolutely adore her music which was played at our wedding in 2002, plus many nights in our home enjoying her beautiful voice. We have listened sober and drunk but every time our end of night always ends listening to Eva. Long will Eva be in our hearts . Long Live Eva xxx
