    Eva was nothing short of amazing! She was persistent and strong with the ability to do it all with sass. She ran boys and the adults in our class! I am at a lost for words. She was definitely the one you would never count out. Eva, I love you and you will always have a place in my heart. I take your picture with me everywhere.
