Dear Melissa, Brian, and John,
Your Mom was my favorite cousin and I will miss her. May you find comfort in our Lord and my deepest sympathy for you and your families.
Love and prayers,

Eva's was the sweet face that greeted us every morning when we went into the office at Waynedale High School. She always offered a warm, friendly good morning; and we think of her fondly. With regrets, we both wish we could have seen her again just one more time to tell her what a sweet and wonderful person she was. I know she is happy to be with Walt again. God bless all of Eva's family.
