Ms. Everleen was the most precious gift to us. I remember her working so hard at Sunday school and Vacation Bible school. We had the best times there that will forever be cherished. She treated us like her own children and we visited the home many times. I smile when I think about her and her family and send out prayers of strength and love knowing that Ms. Everleen is truly remembered by her 'dash' and not her birth and homegoing dates. She was an angel on earth!

Love and blessings to you all.

I have a few memories but I will share two that stand out.
When my Dad (Louis) started dating Marylin they took us to meet Ms. Everleen. She greeted us with open arms and big hugs. She loved us as if we were her grandchildren.
2. When Alvin and I took our kids (Chase and Kai) to visit. Kai was all over Ms. Everleen but she didn't mind. She even danced with them. Such beautiful memories for an amazing woman who raised her children to love us.
