  8. To Eva’s family I offer my most sincere condolence. I only met Eva on two occasions but I’m a friend of Bernie and I want to extend to him my heartfelt sympathy for his great loss. I was always impressed that, when Bernie spoke of Eva, he did so in the most respectful and loving way. It seemed that Bernie and Eva had a great partnership. Bernie, may the many fond memories you have of your time together help sustain you in the days, weeks and months ahead. Sincerely,
    Don

  20. Lorna Radke (Bergstrom) :

    Auntie Eva was the ‘MOST BEAUTIFUL GIRL IN THE WORLD’ to me. I adored her and her wonderful life style since I was old enough to realize that she was my Auntie! Through the many years of our lives – we just knew we are ‘family’ – but not connecting until Family Reunions, weddings and deaths.

    Eva lived graciously and lovingly, cared for her family and put forth heritage energy – I do not know if she could make Pault!

    My most sincere love and understanding of Mom’s loss. Mom Eva will indeed join Ian, her sisters and brothers, and Ma and Pa – they were all such wonderful family.

    May I put forward a request? When you decide on a date for a Memorial Service for Mom, I am away until September 17th and I will really want to bring Auntie Evelyn to Calgary. Please let me know if this is feasible.

    My love and most special feelings!

    Lorna Radke (Bergstrom)

  25. I only just found out about Evas’ passing. She was one of my favorite clients, as I had the opportunity to do her hair for her for over 30 years. Through the years she became like family to me. Her loyalty, friendship and pure honesty was overwhelming at times, as I was very grateful to her support. Through her struggle with the cancer she proved her unwavering determination, positiveness and strength. She will always be remembered by those who knew her and I will never forget Eva. My condolenses go out to Bernie, Neil, Allan, Ian and Sheilah and their spouses, children and grand-children, all of whom she admired and loved with reverence.
