Aunt Evelyn, was the most loving and caring person, that you would have ever met! She was a prime example of a good Christian Lady, that should be the example for many to follow. I loved her, and I’m going to miss her terribly so, but I know I will see her again in glory! Till we meet again, I love you Aunt Evelyn! My prayers and thoughts are with all her kids and grandkids, and brothers and sisters, and all of us family! God bless!
Rest in peace, sweet lady.
Teresa, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
What a wonderful cousin Evelyn was! So sweet and caring. We used to talk on the phone about once a month many years ago and she always asked about my family and how we were doing. Always thinking of others. I have fond memories of her when I was a little girl, by that time she was married but I always looked up to her as a so nice, so friendly, making me Grape Kool-Aid and smiling so sweetly at me. How Blessed you five children were to have such a kind and caring mother. She’s in Heaven, now, with her mind intact, waiting on her little brood to come and enjoy the love and grace of our dear Lord, Jesus Christ.
So sorry to read of the passing of your mother. I think of you and Rhonda often and hope you are all doing well.
God bless you all!
