I will always have wonderful memories growing up with Aunt Eva…every Sunday always cooking for the family, she made the BEST desserts! And spending summers in California with her, with her one piece suit and large straw hats…she was beautiful. Always kind always helpful and so giving of herself to everyone. I will miss her smile and her sweetness. To Jimmy Chris Genevieve and Athanassi as you are learning to live life differently again you are in my thoughts….I love you
