Our deepest sympathy goes out to the family of dear Eva Amon. We first met Eva when Laura and Dan were dating, more than 17 years ago. We wish that we could have seen Eva more often, but we very much enjoyed her company when we were together. We were always moved by the open expression of love that our mutual grandchildren had for her. They clearly have a great deal of love for Grandma Amon. Today we take comfort in knowing that she is at peace and free from pain. Our love and prayers go out to her. Barbara and Kent Martin
