I remember Evelyn . She was my 13 yr. old intermediate Sunday School teacher. Its been so long ago. I remember Evelyn picking me and my sisters, Sara and Judy, up on Saturday and going to Callaway Gardens Beach in Pine Mountain. I remember her in Christ Ambassadors at the old East Highland A/G church in Columbus, Ga. Evelyn was always sweet, caring and a good Christian woman. I know she is rejoicing with Jesus and all the other friends gone on before her.

My sincere condolences to the family at this time of loss. Please draw comfort from the scriptural promises at Acts 24:15 and Rev 21:3, 4 knowing that God cannot lie (Isaiah 46:10, 11).

We have always known Evelyn when we were children and later Tommy. Playing a game of badminton in our yards, bowling with friends, transportation to visit a hospitalized friend, attend a state youth convention, or a ride to church services were examples of her loving and caring spirit. Later when Evelyn and Tommy would be visiting the west coast, or when we moved to the mid west, they were sure to let us know that they would be staying with us. We honor and love them and are grateful that they included us in their lives.
