To all of Evelyn's family, We are so sorry for all the losses that you have endured since Nov. 2017. May God bless you all. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. It was a privilege to have Evelyn for a sister-in-law. She was a fine lady. She had a rough life. God had seen her through many a tough time. She is at peace now. Love you all always.
