    I am so sorry for this great loss in your family’s life. She lived a good long life surrounded by so much love. I’m so glad we had a chance to visit with her during our last trip. The memory of her twinkling eyes and big smile have been with me since that visit. I pray that you are all comforted by the many memories you shared with her and by the knowledge that she will live on in the hearts of all who knew her. May Tia Evelia rest in eternal peace! I know she is smiling upon us from her heavenly home. Our deepest condolences are with you.
