My heart is breaking right now. I still cannot believe my dear sweet Eva, my dear aunt has left us. She was such an amazing, loving, caring person and I’m so proud that I got to call her my aunt. As our hearts mourn for her and we are absolutely lost here without her, take comfort in knowing she is now in the presence of Jesus , where she is safe, happy and healthy and she has been reunited with her beloved husband(Carol), Mawjenny & Pawpaw, Tom, and all the others that we loved so much and have passed. The Bible tells us, absent in the body means to be present with the Lord. Rest now my sweet Eva in the arms of Jesus. Praying for comfort, strength and guidance for all of us during this time and everyday after.

So sorry to hear about the passing of Mrs. Eva. She was a kind and thoughtful neighbor and friend. I'll miss coming outside and seeing her sitting on the porch with that friendly smile. She was always there if I needed help of any kind along with her children Calvin and Christina. Praying for the family strength and comfort during this difficult time.
