Aunt Eva was such a lovely lady. I will always remember the joy of visiting with you all in our younger years. Time and distance kept us apart in our later years but the memories never faded, just like the memories that you will always hold dear to your heart of your Mother. She will always be there for you with her spirit. May God bless you always and again she left a lot of beautiful memories. Just imagine the joy that she is sharing with your Dad now!

I am sorry for our loss but I know you are in a better place and that is with my dad. I love you so very much and will miss you forever and a day. Please tell dad hello and I look forward to seeing you both again. You were the best mother and father anyone could ask for.

Loving you always
