"90th birthday today...I was thinking how elegant you were, how much I would love to visit with you, especially today to celebrate YOU! Happy 90th birthday today here on earth, wish you were here! I love(d) you Momma!"
"Eva was my second Mom, she was always there for me. She was so easy for me to talk to. Eva was my Mom's best friend, She was with my Mom when she passed away. I was so comforted that Mom was not alone, but with her buddy. I see them drinking coffee all day, coloring each other's hair, and a night cap of Sherry to finish the day. I have great memories of Eve and Walt, how I loved them both. I see you and Mom chatting over coffee. Love you Eve, and miss you. I am so happy you were in my life. What a wonderful second Mom."
"Happy Birthday, Aunt Eva! I love you and miss you dearly. So blessed for the wonderful memories that bring smiles to my face when thinking of you. xoxo"
"Happy birthday Grandma. Today is the visitation for Nick's dad and it makes me so sad to have lost loved ones this year. I pray that you, dad, and Nick's dad are singing beautiful music with Jesus today. I love you."
Thank you for preparing me and Christian for Dad's passing. While on our morning walk yesterday I loved seeing a reminder of you in the beautiful irises that are blooming. I could never have imagined that talking to Christian about heaven would be such a relevant topic.
I hope that you are showing Dad all the wonderful things about heaven right now. You are missed and I love you so much."
"You are always on my mind..... Willy Nelson it's singing in my head & so many memories are flooding me as tears flow tonight. I miss Eva Mae Smith, my mommy & friend. I want to spend time with you. Some dates are are hard & today it's hard without you."
"MOM, so hard to believe it has been almost 3 years since you left ...
i miss you profoundly - yes, I'm comforted to know you are with Dad, and the two of you are in the Presence of the Lord ... part of my heart is with you, and always will be, i love you, !!!"
"Happy Birthday Aunt Eva! Go enjoy a Bill Knapp's birthday cake and listen to Bing Crosby sing "Happy Birthday to you" with my Mom. Either that or you and Uncle Walt can play some cards with my Mom and Dad. I know that all four of them are having the best time together in paradise! Love and miss you. :)"
"Happy birthday, Grandma! I wish we could go out and celebrate at Mere Bulles like we did for your 80th birthday! I'm so thankful that you lived a long life and so many of those years were in perfect health! I hope you and Paula Wyatt are making beautiful music praising the Lord together! Losing loved ones is so hard but I know we'll see you again!"
"Grandma, you have been in my thoughts a lot over the past few days. I wish you could hold your beautiful granddaughter! I can't wait to share stories and pictures with her as she grows! Thank you for watching over her! I had a good cry the other day as I came across the letters that Grandpa wrote you. Thank you for giving them to me! And thank you for loving and teaching me so much!"
I went by your mother's home in Foxwood today. I guess I was looking for a hug. I miss her. Harry"
"Happy 85th Birthday, Aunt Eve. I miss you so very much. I am so glad to have another little Eva Mae in our family now but am sad that she will not know you as she grows up. One day, I know, one day we will all be together again. Love you and miss you, dearest Auntie"
"Can't believe it's been a year...I am QUITE sure that she, Uncle Walt, and my mom and dad are playing a game of cards (pinochele spelled wrong!)....and sharing memories and having a great ole time....thankfully we'll be able to see them again someday! :)"
"Mom, i think it took BEING a Mom myself, to really understand a Mother's LOVE. for all you've IMPARTED to me, for ALL you've given and all your LOVE - I am truly grateful ! I think you know NOW, more than ever how profoundly i love you ! i miss you, but i feel you near."
"I cannot believe it has been a year since your light went out of my life. I think of you all the time, miss you and love you so very much. I know where you are and that I will see you again one day, but sure would love to call you and hear your voice right now! Love, Janine"
"On this day one year ago......that's all I can write. I miss my mom!"
"I needed to see you and remember your face....I'm glad this webspace is here for us. Thank you RaeAnna, for setting this up- a place to leave a thought and shed a tear. My mother was a beautiful person and I miss her so so much."
"January 14, 2011
I hope this Birthday was very special - because you are freed from this body and reunited with Dad in the courts of the Lord. Please watch over my Katie Lynn,'til I get there ... Love you !"
"Aunt Eve, I was thinking of sending you a picture of Lindsay from her recital and a fall card. and then I remembered that you are not here. I will miss picking out or making you cards and sending pics of the kids.
I miss YOU so very much. My heart hurts so much when I think of you being gone. But I know you are with Jesus.
Love you always and forever,
"Proud to have had Eve as our friend. We miss our hugs. She brought pleasure to everyone she met with her hugs. Harry and Edna Richardson, Guelph Ontario, Canada."
"Eve was a special friend to Frank and me. I enjoyed visiting with Eve on way back to Michigan in the spring. Our cruise trips where great."
"Dearest Aunt Eve, hardly a day goes by without you coming into my thoughts. I miss you so very much and hear your voice in my mind and feel sad that I can't call you and talk to you."
"I thought of you yesterday Grandma! I sang a song with other music teachers and wished that you could still come hear my choir and school programs. Playing music for you brought me so much joy!"
"I miss you Mom. You showed unconditional love to all, thank-you for your example!"
"miss you so much, Mom - but i feel you with me sometimes, and it helps ..."
"I'm missing you Momma...."
"Love you forever. Not enough room here to write all of the feelings in my heart.
"Aunt Eve, I miss you so much! I love you forever and ever and always."
"Eva was a beautiful Christian lady. She will be
greatly missed by her family and friends. She
was truly an inspiration."
