Eva we didn’t know you for a long time, but we knew Jody and David. They would tell us stories of you and your late husband traveling all over in the states.
You are now at peace with our Lord.
Dave and Celeste.

To the family of Eva Hallsen:
Please accept my sincere condolences during this distressing and sad time. I am a second cousin of Eva's. My mother, Faith Wheeler Renaldo was a niece of Aunt Nell and Uncle Leon Williams of Prendergast Ave., Jamestown. Cousin Eva, as I knew her, took me to the movies after Thanksgiving dinner for several years, rain, shine, or snow when I was 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 and 6 years younger than her. Also, I would see her quite often when I worked for Uncle Leon at his grocery store on 2nd Street.
Eva, may you have peace and happiness now that you are back with Jim. . . . . . . . . .Ron Renaldo
