    I first met Eva at Vermont Towers in 2015 with VNA clinic I was the nurse for. She would come down to get her blood pressure checked. Always had a bright smile and had a laugh that would make me smile and brighten my day. She would talk about her love for God and how proud she was of her two boys and grandchildren. My condolences to the family and May God Bless you all and heal your hearts. Sincerely The Wesley and Thompson family

    We fondly remember Eva Mae. You cannot think about her without smiling, even now. No matter where you saw her in the neighborhood, at the store, school, church, or the workplace, Eva Mae would give you a big hello, a great smile, and a warm (contagious) laugh! Her memories will live on through so many. Prayerfully, The Galloway family.

    In Memoriam

    March 17, 2023

    “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” (Matthew 5:4)

    To: Evangelist Susan Shaw and the family and friends of Sis. Eva Mae Daniels: We are sorry to hear of the passing of your loved one. We know the loss of someone you love is hard to deal with and often feels unbearable but know that God loves you, and He will see you through your time of sorrow.

    Be reassured by God’s Word that says, “Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.” – I Thessalonians 4:13-14

    We pray that the Lord Jesus Christ bring you comfort and that He will strengthen you and bring you His peace. We love you, and we are here for you.

    Love and prayers,

    Bishop Timothy L. Dupree, Sr., Pastor
