Christal and I extend our deepest sympathy. Eva was a beautiful and gracious woman. Whenever we saw her at the Lake she had a big smile on her face and a gracious greeting.

Your mother was part of what made Raquette Lake a special place.

She will be missed.

Dear Liz;
I write this with a heavy heart I write this upon hearing about the passing of you beautiful mother Eva. She was one of the most faithful, caring, gentle, and loving woman I have had the pleasure of knowing, although briefly. It's strange that on the day of her passing it was put on my heart to call you since we haven't spoken in some time, but as life would have it I didn't. My deepest sympathy to you and your family during this time of mourning. Although you are hurting now know that your mother Eva is with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ where there is no pain and suffering.

With Love,
Joelle and Joseph Maloney
