Evana, you were my friend, my confidant, my business colleague, my mentor, and travel buddy. Much time has passed since you left us but your words, your face, your laugh are alive and well in my mind to this day. I miss you.

I just heard of Eve passing. I'm so sad for Paul and her precious daughter and boys. I met Eve during The Fence Rail Era. She was always Gracious and kind and so sweet. My daughter and I will never forget.

Our times at Rosie's Place still remain an important part of my life and my connection to Evana. Such a special, loving and caring person.
I often think about the wonderful conversations we had about Feng Shui and other topics of interest to both of us. I include her in my Buddhist prayers everyday. Nam Myoho Renge Kyo.
Love & Light to her family.

I was Astrid's best friend all through school and I spent many hours at the Anderson home. I just adored little Evana, everyone did. She was the most beautiful child I ever knew and she was well-loved by her family.
Although, I don't know her family now, I am so very sorry for your loss. I know she remained beautiful Evana and was well-loved by all of you.
She is at peace may you also be.

To Eve's Family,
I had the distinct pleasure of meeting and working with Eve both at The Fence Rail and the boutique we opened together, Evana many, many years ago. She taught me so much and was such a mentor to me. I have often thought of her through the years. Today, a mutual friend called me and told me of her passing and I am so very sorry for your loss. It is obvious she made a lasting impression to many throughout the world... Including me. God Bless You and rest in peace, dear Eve.

A shock for me and sadness for her family. I trained with Evana and her inspirational course linking Fashion with Feng Shui, and followed her progress, always learning from her and her generous and caring approach to living. My heartfelt condolences to all who were part of her life.

So sorry to hear of Evana's passing. She was an inspiration to me - a young Image Consultant trying to figure out the business and my place in it. She was generous with her time and ideas, and had the most wonderful Spirit. Blessings to the entire family and my deepest sympathies on your loss.

Evie was an Alpha Chi sister of mine at Umass back in the early seventies. I was very saddened to hear of her passing but not at all surprised to hear that she went on to do great things with her life.....a fun loving, gorgeous and generous old soul. Peace to family and friends.

Dear Paul & Family,

It was with great sadness that I learned of Eve's passing. As I emailed to Paul, I was in Africa when I heard this news and was unable to return in time for the services. Please know that although I was unable to attend, my heartfelt thoughts were with all of you. Eve was a great friend to many including my parents, my family and me. She was a truly beautiful person in many ways and she will be missed by so many. My sincerest sympathies to each of you. Kindly, Stephen

Dear Paul, Jacquie and family,
It was truly a shock hearing about Evana's death last night. She was an angel on earth. For the almost 10 years she produced the LOVE FEST at Rosie's Place, a homeless shelter for women, our company was fortunate to be invited to take give make-overs and take portraits of the women and sometimes their children. So often she would say how blessed and lucky in life she was and how much pleasure she received from sharing at those special times she created. Thank you for that honor. I also appreciated her work with Feng Shui and somewhere have a video of her giving me a consultation. As a Spiritual person, I know she is and always will be a part of our lives. The suffering and sadness her close loved ones feel is something that only time can heal. My thoughts are prayers are sent your way.
Love and light, Daphne

Dear Paul, Jaquie and family,

Evanna was a gift to everyone who knew her. This woman could walk into a room with a presence that said I am here. I made it - in a natural regal elegance and grace with ok now it's time to get down to business. - no nonsense perspective.

Amazing mind. Amazing insight. Looking to understand more. And coming from a depth of living in the honor and respect of herself and others.

Family, friends,and the animals were her treasures. And she will not be forgotten. Thank you Evanna for gracing us with your presence.

On Sunday I was dreaming of Evana and wished to write to tell her how much I miss her.
Now I understand she was passing by me to say Good bye...
I met Evana in 2010 for the training in London and the volcano ashes ( as the reason for our non scheduled longer stay) helped us get to know each other better, have dinners together and talk about so many things of life....we were sharing not only the same Chinese sign of the Rabbit, but also the Virgo curiosity for everything beautiful in life...
I Thanked the volcano that time for giving me that chance to know a wonderful soul like Evana and become friends, besides the teacher - student relationship.
Now I thank you, Evana, for helping me in taking decisions which changed my life...and thank you for sharing with the Fashion Fengshui family the news of my marriage...
Thank you for bringing into my life Cinzia Fassetta, it is thanks to you and to the fact you put us in the same hotel room that we got to know each other better and become the dear sisters we are now...
Thank you for bringing fengshui back into my life (in the last years I took care of a fengshui Academy and always use fengshui in my consultancy)...
Thank you for being so inspiring to so many of us, I can promise you we are continuing your wonderful work...
If you want, come sometimes to guide us from your Heaven.
You will always be my mentor and an example of great fighter in life!
Rest in peace, my love to you,

My condolences to Evana's family. I knew Evana through her annual day for the ladies @ Rosie's Place Shelter, Boston. I was happy to volunteer my holistic therapy w/the residents - on that one day, Evana gave them so much, beyond words. She helped them feel & look special, she gave of herself and they felt Love! Thank You, Evana-a very special earth angel while in body, she now teaches & continues to love from yet a higher realm.

Dearest Evana - My Star Buddie,
Your infinite creativity and spirituality has inspired many people around the world - including me. I will miss you so much, and know that you are now dancing with the angels that you have been connected with throughout your life. Our years of friendship and then together partnering in the teachings of Fashion Feng Shui were such a gift. I will always treasure you and what we shared - and am so honored that I had this opportunity to be by your side.
Paul, Jackie, and Sons: My deepest and most heartfelt wishes to you, that solace may come into your hearts each day. Evana's great love for each of you was so apparent as she would share these feelings during our heart-to-heart talks.
Sweet Evana - you are all love,
