I remember how she expressed how much she was touched by the human video “ I can only imagine” when I did it at church. Now, I truly can only imagine what she is experiencing right now in the arms of Jesus!

Welcoming, gracious, funny, loving - all these words describe Eva. She was my mother-in-law's best friend, a faithful wife and loving mother and grandmother. I've been told she made the best hamburgers EVER - at least the Swinford men thought so! Steadfast in her faith - unwavering in her commitment to Jesus - stalwart protector of her husband, home, and family. So thankful that I met her. Grateful that she was an important part of Larry's childhood. "When we all get to heaven, what a day of rejoicing that will be." Eva's rejoicing today - healthy and whole. We mourn, but not as those who have no hope.
