    Lewis, my deepest condolences to you and your family at this sad time. I never was privileged to meet your mother but have read about her and her remarkable life from your writings on Facebook. May her memory be a blessing.

    We are so very fortunate our paths crossed! So many memories. Many lively meals and conversation. Eva - always interested in living BIG each day. A shooting star whose stunning beauty both inside and out will not be forgotten.

    To the family of Mrs. Eva Friedlander: My deepest condolences on your loss! I had the pleasure to work with Eva and Mickey Goodman on Eva's book and got to know her. It was a pleasure to do her book and get to know her life's story. It thought me a lot. I miss her very much.

    Eva was a special gift to all who knew her. Her kind heart, warm demeanor, sweet smile and unyielding love were infectious. We met a few years ago on Yom Hashoah, when I invited her to speak to women at the Weber School. She shared her life story, made everyone in the audience laugh and cry, and sold many copies of her book. The guests adored her, as everyone else who came in contact with her. We kept close, and I was always amazed at how sharp her mind was. We spoke last right before Pesach, and promised to get together soon. I was so sorry to hear the news this morning. May Eva's memory be for a blessing. I am thinking about her family at this difficult time. What joie de vivre this wonderful woman had!

    I will miss my dear friend Eva more than words can say. I am so honored to have known such a courageous, strong woman - she was an inspiration. Sending prayers to the Friedlander family to heal your hearts. With much love, Nancy

    I volunteered with Eva at the Breman Museum, and was privileged to spend time with her. She was one of my heroes, and a warm, wonderful person. You could not spend time with Eva without feeling the love that came from her, and without loving her. She lit up any room she was in. My deepest condolences to your family. I will miss her very much.

    I knew the family when I worked for Eva and George at Custom Chemicals in the '70's. Eva was a delight to be around, intelligent, kind, and curious, and we became friends. It has been 5 years or so since we last spoke, but her humor and intellect had remained intact, as I am certain they did to the very end. Eva was a remarkable woman, and I am sorry to see her go. My heart goes out to her family as I mourn her passing with them.
    Karen Blalock May 9 2017 02:04 am
    So sorry for your loss. I had never met her, but, from all I heard and read about her, she was truly a wonderful and caring person. A true survivor, and a great inspiration to all.
    Lili BaxterMay 8 2017 10:01 pm
    Eva was a bright light and shining star. She was a remarkably positive and loving person who enjoyed jazz, good conversations and raspberries. She was a pleasure to be with and will be missed very deeply. My condolences to her family. Her memory is indeed a blessing to us all.

    To the family of Mrs. Eva Friedlander: My deepest condolences on your loss! I had the honor of meeting Eva after she spoke to our Soldiers last May at the 335th Signal Command in East Point about her experiences during the Holocaust. She did a wonderful job and the Soldiers were thrilled to hear her first hand account. This past September 16th, Carla (Master Sergeant Clark-Pitchford) and I went to lunch with Eva at a beautiful Tea House in Atlanta where she entertained us for hours. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. I lost my mother, Patricia, six weeks ago at 92 years old and I know how difficult it is, but Eva and my mother were both blessed to live fully to the very end. Sincerely, Lieutenant Colonel Deidre Kelley-Perrin from the 335th Signal Command
    Mrs. ThomasMay 8 2017 03:01 pm
    Our thoughts are with you and your dear family at this great time of loss. May you find the wonderful promise mentioned in the Holy Scriptures at Isaiah 26:19 be of much comfort in the coming days ahead.

    My dear Lewis and Lynne, You have lost your dear mother and I have lost a best friend. Your mother enriched my life in ways too numerous to name. Her courage, strength, humor, examples of traits we should follow in our lives. Eva, was loved and admired by all. We had so many projects for the future, our missing them makes me sad, but to know your mother will not face more pain and difficult times gives me peace. She was an inspiration and will always be with me. Affectionately, Nancy Robinson
