    You were a beautiful soul, full of love and faith, you have ascended to heaven, away from us, but closer to God, leaving loneliness and sadness.
    Words cannot describe what I am feeling. You were like a second mom to me. I give my condolences to the entire family. May God rest her soul.

    Eugenie was a wonderful stepmom to me, and Nana to my son. We were privileged to know her and have her in our lives for more than 30 years. With love, Stephanie, Jerry and Nick
