I've known Eva since I first started teaching in 1958 and I taught some of her children. Upon reading of her death, I felt that the world of education, as well as that of her family and friends, has suffered a tremendous loss. She contributed many years to the education of the children of this area. Thank you, Eva.

To Kelly Hodge Flack and children:
Grief, and missing a grandmother and great-grand, is a hard thing sometimes to bear, but try to remember that she is not really gone away, she's just been promoted to a higher position.
