    There was no one like our Aunt Eunice. She was definately a unique lady, unafraid to be different and to be herself. She loved beauty in flowers, beautiful old things and people with beautiful hearts. We loved seeing her in her lace, hats, shawls and gloves. She took us back to times when women dressed like ladies. She may have lived like a lady from the past, but she fought for her future. We'll miss her and her courage. She loved and she was loved. We will never forget Aunt Eunice. Nephew & niece, Larry and Deborah

    Ms Rivenbark was such a sweet lady, always impeccably dressed, and ready to chat. She always volunteered on Saturdays at St Paul's when we hosted families from Wilmington Interfaith Hospitality. She really talked to the children and more importantly for them, she listened. We will miss her so much. Our deepest sympathy to her family and friends. Margaret & Bob Musacchio

    It was with a heavy heart that I learned of the passing of Eunice. She was always kind to me from the very moment I first met her. She was a dear friend of my Mother also. Jerry, I love you as my Brother and I and my family express our deepest sympathy. Kent

    I shall miss Eunice. She was such a joy. I loved to see what she was wearing when she came into our office. She always looked like she was on her way to high tea. What a treasure.

    To the Rivenbark family, Eunice was a beautiful lady. In church, she sat in the pew behind Julian and me. She was always smiling and looking beautiful in her hats and gloves! Julian and I will always remember Eunice. May peace with you. Vivian and Julian Burnett
