Eva Dyer Sharp

Lum was my dad's cousin (Bud Bach). He and Eva lived down the street from us when we lived in Wilmington, CA in the late 40's and early 50's. Whenever my Mom (Geraldine House Bach) & I went to AR to visit my grandparents we would always visit Eva. I remember one time she presented my mom with a crocheted table cloth. She knew we would be there at decoration day every year. We would spend an afternoon with a glass of ice tea and great conversation. They would talk about old school days and catch up on the latest news. Mom and I will see you shortly, Eva. God speed.

My Great Aunt Eva always had something to tell you about. She had an awesome sense of humor! She had a smile and a glass of tea for you whenever you stopped by to visit. I would sit in the floor & listen to whatever take she had. 😊 Although she will be missed, I’m so happy for her to reunite with my Great Uncle Lum! ❤️

Aunt Eva was always a happy person when I was growing up. She had a smile for everyone. Aunt Eva and Uncle Lum was always fun to be around. Of this, I am certain, that I will see her again in Glory.
