Eva was such a wonderful woman and an important part of my childhood. She was beautiful, kind, had a sweet laugh and made amazing tortillas. Thinking of Gilbert, John, Francine and Freddy during this sad time. Thanks for sharing your beautiful mom with us. She will never be forgotten.

Eva and I worked together at KMart. We always had fun, we went out with other women. I met a lot of her family when they came into town from CA. She was always smiling. I will miss her dearly.

To my honey,
Im very sorry that Im not with you right now. You were a wonderful wife to me and a beautiful person inside and out. I remember when the novena started how excited you were because you were serving others. You donated your time in serving your community at Sacred Heart Church. Thats just the kind of person you were, kind and loving. You were so happy when Father Bill married us at the 10:30 mass. We were married 13 years and Im sorry we missed out on 4 years together. I never stopped thinking of you, always loved you, and always will. We will always be together in spirit.
Your love,
