Ricky and Amy and Family.
Fond memories of your mother way back when we were just little chaps down stairs at the church in Sunday School. She always loved on me and called me "one of her boys". Thank God for saints like her who said many prayers for us all. Precious Memories. You have my deepest sympathy.

A wonderful loving Aunt. Pound cake queen! I have lots of loving memories of her. She was loved by everyone who met her, and will me missed. One thing is certain, she is in heaven celebrating and that is comforting. Precious memories......

Amy and Ricky, you know I thought the world of Evelyn.She was a great Mother and Grandma Honeybee and Nanny as we affectionately called her. She was always happy to have a visitor and was always smiling. She always took great delight to an occasional piece of pound cake as if it was a great gift. She will be missed by us all.
