Eva Sharp was one of the nicest women to have ever been a part of my life. She loved teaching Sunday School to the youth and was a huge part of my Christian Life as a child and I will never forget this Precious Lady. Without any doubt she is with our Lord now Greeted as a Faithful Servant. Rest in Peace Sweet Lady and Thank You Lord for sharing her with me.

My Sincere Condolences & Prayers are with the Family,
