Wendy and Robert, I am so saddened to hear of Evelyn's passing. She was a great neighbor with the biggest heart and softest voice. I enjoyed our porch visits where we chatted about everything. She even did my hair when she had her salon in her house.
I know she is wrapped in God's arms with peace. My thoughts are with you during this difficult time.
