My condolences to Vicki, William, Richard (Dicki), Teresa, all the grandkids and great grandkids! My heart breaks for your loss! Eva was always like a second Mom & her and Mr Sam where such special people! I have known this family since they welcomed us to the neighborhood and into their lives! Here we are 43 years later! I have such fond memories of Eva and times with Vicki and Richard and their families! I know that she will be greatly missed as she was greatly loved! I know she is no longer in pain or suffering and is up there with family! I know she is up there dancing with Sam and my parents, like they use to do every week at the Moose! This is a woman and family that invited us in their lives and kept us there no matter what! Mr Sam went at a very young age and Mrs Eva was a very strong woman! She was a fighter and won many battles over many things and situations! I will miss those talks with her and I’m glad we got to talk and hang out several times again over the last few years! She touched many lives and cared about many people! I am asking the Lord to please Lift up Vicki & Dicki’s families in prayers and all her friends as well! May God bring peace over each of you and carry you when you have had more than you can take! May he continue to guide you all in your future and lead you down the right paths! May he help you heal from your losses and May he wipe your tears & pain away when you have moments of missing your Mom! May God send all of the support you need to get through the process of what is to come and May you lean to him in your time of need! Please know that I am there in spirit and wish that I could be there in person with you on Friday! Sending you all my Love and hugs ! Rest In Peace dear Eva! We will join you one day and rejoice and sing or dance together! Much love Vicki, Tommy, Thomas & Cody (Page) Catucci

Eva was like a second mother to me growing up next door. We spent a lot of time at Lynn Haven Beach by the old pier. Eva was a lot of fun and a joy to hang around with the last three years before she got sick. My Love to Dicki and Theresa, Vickie Sue and William. Lol Vickie Sue could not say my name when she was young and called me Lulu. I loved it. Sam, Eva, Mom and Dad spent a lot of time together. Eva was the last to go home. Mom was 5 months younger than Eva but when home in 2006 at the young age of 71. Sam went home first, Daddy, mom and now Eva. There is a party going on in heaven especially on Christmas Eve. Fond memories, she is no longer in pain and is with family in heaven. Sissy , her sister had waited a long time. Be at peace mama Eva, you know I loved you.

I’m so sorry for your loss. May the God of all comfort help you during this difficult time. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4 & Psalms 83:18). Jesus prayed for God’s Kingdom to come because He knew it would intervene to solve all mankind’s problems even sickness and death. (Revelation 21:3-5 & Daniel 2:44).
