Dear Little Mrs. Eva,
You brought me joy. Our conversations and time together were priceless. I will always remember the time when I recently said early one morning, " Aunt Eva you can't do that, I'll drop you." With your eyes closed and not missing a beat you said, " What am I a ball?"
You were tough and kind, dressed to the nines, a street sweeper,tender and "fresh"; wise beyond education, and simply the best woman I have ever known. We love you, all of you!
"If you knew Eva like I knew Eva, oh,oh,oh what a gal!!"
