I'll miss my beautiful sister alot. Although eleven years older than me, she was young at heart. We had many a good and amusing conversations sharing about artistic ideas and reminising our childhood memories and encouraging each other with spiritual values. Her wonderful daughter looks alot like her.Eva appreciated and loved her very dedicated husband Orval. Bless their hearts
