I was saddened to read of Evelyns'' passing. It has been years since I had seen Evelyn but I do remember seeing her when I would visit Uncle Mart and Aunt Lona. I send my prayers in this difficult time.

Evelyn was our Mom's roommate at Country Manor. She always spoke to us and often I would help her with her blankets or something else. She spent her last days on earth in a good place and we have another angel watching over us. May your good memories help you through these trying times.
