Prior to succumbing to the debilitating effects of her disease, she worked on her third book of poetry. Her other published works of poetry are Acres of Diamonds (1991) and The Power and the Glory (1996). Evelina wrote her last poem, Choose to Be Happy, in 2001 to be given to her youngest grandson, Michael, at his high school graduation in 2004. Somehow she knew she would not be able to attend.Knowing that sharing these poems was one of the last cognitive choices her mother made, her daughter, Johnetta, decided to complete Evelinas dream of publishing her third and final book of poetry, It Is Time to Choose to Be Happy.
