We extend our deepest sympathy to the family. Over the years that we knew Evelina on a business level, we came to know what a kind loving person she was. She always took time to chat with us and bring us up to date on her beloved family members - sometimes sharing photos. She has a special place in our hearts. From the Lamb Family

Yvonne Turner- You we're an important fixture in the life of BHS students when I attended. I remember your dad being a physician who was spoken of highly. I am sorry for the loss of your dear mother.

I’m so very thankful for the wonderful memories I have of my sweet Aunt Evelina and so thankful I was able to see her last summer. I find solace knowing she was happy and loved. She is now reunited with her beloved Dr. Paul and beautiful sweet Teri, Carrie, Granny and Grandpa - what a big greeting she received. Hasta que nos encontremos de nuevo. - Dawn Murillo Bush

My deepest sympathies for Yvonne de Mesquita, dearest friend, and entire family of Evelina Bueno de Mesquita, at this time of passing. The sweetest thought is that dear "Aunt" Evelina is with her beloved Dr. Paul, and the light and love they shared with us on earth surrounds them in Heaven always. They are forever in our hearts and memories. Their profound love and caring for all of us is an eternal blessing we now all share. Amen.
