  1. Our oldest sister, Eva will continue to live in the deepest depths of our hearts. You took care of all of us and because of it we are all better.
    With all my love rest in peace.

  2. Although I just met my first cousin once when she visited Portland Oregon, I know she had a fruitful life and will be missed by many.
