Eve added a sense of beauty, elegance, and grace with her presence. She was the epitome of a good mom, and a wonderful grandmother. Those of us blessed enough to be close to her, benefited from a wisdom that was broad in its understanding and balanced in its nature. And most of all, we were blessed with her love. A beautiful soul, Evelyn Edgerly Coulter/Mom/Nana, you will forever be in our hearts.
