Jeff and family,

I am devastated to hear this news. Eva was a sweetheart, I knew her for many years when she worked for CareLink and Addus Home Care. She was always somebody that I trusted and looked up to, when I had a hard time she was always there to listen and try to help! May she rest in peace, she will be dearly missed! God Bless the family.
