Sorry to hear of Everett's passing. I knew Evie since we were young men. The last time I saw him was at the Whistle Stop. We had a good visit, talked about old times while sharing a few cold ones. Evie was one of the best. He will certainly be missed but not forgotten. My wife Ruth and I send our sincere condolences to Evie's family. Rest in peace, good friend!

I knew I loved you and Susan from the first time I met you two. You and Susan came to PEI to help settle Amy & Erin into their apartment. You were friendly, had a teasing playful nature, full of laughter and could carry a great conversation. No shortage of words between us! My sympathy goes out to your beautiful and loving family. Rest easy Evie!
