Words don't soothe the pain and emptiness in your hearts at this time. You may not be able to see her now but she will remain alive in you. A thought, a fragrance, a song she liked, a gentle touch on your cheek. Conversations you will share with her, memories, the thought of her laughter and goodness. The Lord was ready for her to carry on in Heaven, and I'll bet she welcomed the Angels sent to get her with open arms. She knew her Lord; how wonderful for her to see Him face to face! May her loving Lord bless you all with His peace and comfort. Much love,

JULY 8th, 2012 Our love, condolences and prayers to all the family. We will see her again. Be blessed and know that God Loaned her to you all for a long wonderful time and her mansion was finally ready. The angels just swept the gold dust off the streets of gold that lead to her mansion, as she waits for you. Her Lord and Savior says "I am yours too." Pastor Roy and Linda Martinez

We are so sorry Aunt Eva has passed on. We really wanted to attend the services, but Carol Jean has been having "spells" (almost passing out). The latest was this evening (8th July). Our heartfelt sympathies to all. Our love to each of you. Jean and Jess Appling
