Eva, I will miss you so much especially your contagious smile along with your beautiful southern voice. You were a part of our “Jon’s lunch group” and we will never forget you. You and Bill will always be with us, sending prayers for your family during this difficult time. Heaven has an amazing angel looking over us forever!!

I could fill this page completely up with things I wanna say to you grandma, I would have to start by saying that you meant the world to me, you inspired me and anytime I was feeling down about my Dad, you were always there to give me advice, and comfort. Life will not be the same without you….. The pleasure was all mine Grandma, you were the best, you still are! I know that your happy now, in there presence of God, Jesus and all if your loved ones… Your with Papa, your son’s and your parents and the rest of the family now…. I’m happy for you. But I am sad Grandma…. And I won’t ever be the same. I’ll miss your voice, your laugh, your smile and your smell. I will miss the cards and the candy and the sweet tea…. The times you would sing with me and read me your poems, I just can’t believe your gone…..
