Mrs. E was always so welcoming when I visited Brandy. She was so fun! I will never forget when she did my hair for prom as a favor. She had me looking good. She raised beautiful young ladies and her memory will live on.
Rest in Peace Mrs. E.

It was my privilege to work with Evelyn at the Department of Environmental Quality. If ever I needed a "pick-me-up," I would seek out Evelyn's spirit-filled wisdom and encouragement. I hope we provided that to her as she experienced her challenges in this life. My condolences to her family.

Evelyn had an eye for landscaping, crafting, and sharing the love with family and friends. Eternal rest grant unto Evelyn, oh, Lord; and may your perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace. Amen.
