Constance Eve — A Great Lady has made her transition..

Constance Eve, the wife of former Assemblyman Arthur Eve has made her transition. During the year of  Mayoral campaigning in Buffalo, NY Arthur Eve was the Deputy speaker of the NY Assembly he put his hat in the Mayoral Race.

On two occasions, I organized buses from our church in Brooklyn, NY to do voter registration drives and campaign for Arthur Eve. As the race heated up, Art and I decided that I would live with them at their home. Day and night we would walk through streets, visit houses, bars, saloons, and speak at rallies, etc.

Mrs. Eve was the perfect host and the perfect partner for Arthur Eve. She was always gentle, friendly and expended energy to make sure I was comfortable. She was a great campaigner, smart and cordial. They had two children then Eric and Erica. I can say truthfully, we never had a misunderstanding. I will always remember the kindness and friendliness of Mrs. Eve. We were indeed like family.

Art lost the election. He ran as a Democrat and Buffalo has been a Democratic city for as long as anyone can remember. But the Euro- ethnics decided to vote for the mayor who had been defeated by Arthur Eve in the Democratic primary. He lost the election but won the family. The Eve family and my family have been one family ever since.

Eric and my daughter Leah have worked together on many projects and Erica has also.

On behalf of my family, my church, the House of the Lord Church, the community and supporters, the people I represent:

I extend my prayers and condolences to the family and friends with faith that what we call death does not make a final end, it is just a transition. And the resurrection of Jesus Christ which we just commemorated reminds us and reassures us that there is hope beyond the grave.

Jesus said let not your heart be troubled if you believe in God, believe also in me. In my father’s house are many mansions if it were not so I would’ve told you. I go to prepare a place for you and where I am there you may be also. "And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am." John 14:3
