My sympathies to all of you who were the family and friends of Eva. I've known her for most of the 9 years I've been at St. Francis. I've given here Communion monthly when she was at the Senior Center and then at Sunset Home. Her faith meant a lot to her. She was a very sweet lady. May she rest in the loving arms of our Lord.

In my previous note I forgot to add that I am sorry I will not be able to attend Eva's funeral. I'll be busy with another one at the same time. She will be in my prayers. Fr. Don
