Louann, so sorry to see of the passing of your Mom. Eva Mae was a very special lady. We loved singing with her in the Oldies but Goodies choir. When she and Ruth were both at Eldorado nursing home, I would enjoy talking with her at the lunch table. A very classy lady that you enjoyed for a long time. Bless you and your family.
