  1. I’m a first cousin of Eva and just ran across her memorial on FindaGrave.com while doing some editing of her twin sister’s memorial. I’m son of her mother’s youngest sibling, Roy (Punky) Carpenter. Our sympathy and prayers are with her family.

  2. I will miss Eva. I’ve been playing the piano every, in Garden West, since 2012. I loved Eva, she would sing along and knew just about every song I played. She always wanted to sit right beside me, to watch me play. She thought I was her personal piano player.😍
