  1. Our heartfelt sympathy for the family during this time of loss, you all are in our prayers. We will forever love aunt Eva and look forward to reuniting with her one day in Heaven.

  2. Leslie and Clara…..I only met your mother/grandmother the one time, so many years ago. In addition to her diminutive stature, I recall an easy laugh, a quick smile and a kind heart. May your happy memories help to ease your pain through this difficult time.
    All my love to you both.

  3. Peace and comfort to you from our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ. I have happy memories of Eva. Our thoughts are with you. Be kind to one another. Amen
