Dave and Eva were the first babysitters for our first granddaughter Briar. We met them 11 years ago and enjoyed their friendship. They made countless trips to Missouri to visit Briar and her family. She would go and visit them every summer for a week of Memaw and PaPaw time! Truly wonderful, loving and kind! Our family will truly miss them!! Dave and Eva both have a special place in our hearts!
