I am sorry to hear about the loss of Eva. I often think about my visit to your home a few years back, and the time you took to show me around. My prayers go out to you, the family and all that knew her.
and The Rainforest Collection.

My sympathies, Mr. Whitlock, I know the battle was at least as much yours as hers.

She not only was a plant lover herself and seemed to enjoy their amazing garden and incredible collection of plants (she had a lot of her own favorites), but had her own hand in collecting things as well: one of the most amazing Tiffany lamp and art collections I have ever seen, amazing art all over the house, and seemed to know a lot about style and art (I was too ignorant in those areas to test her or embarrass myself by trying to discuss these things with her, though).
I feel I was lucky to have met her, and priveledged to have been invited into her home and treated with so much kindness. I am saddened by her passing and knowing Loran will miss her terribly.

Loran, my heart is breaking for you because I know how much you loved her as she did you. She was such a nurturer--always making sure you were well-cared for and content. She so enjoyed preparing wonderful meals for you and you were always so thankful for her talent and effort. She so loved and appreciated you. You gifted her throughout your marriage with many exciting and interesting travel experiences as well as designing a beautiful living environment for the two of you to share. She shared with me many times about her joy in the multi-faceted experiences that your life together afforded her.
Thank you, Loran, for making your home totally accessible to me during her final days so that I could spend as much time as possible with her to be able to say goodbye to my cherished friend. My prayers are with you, Loran, because I see how deeply you feel her loss.
