Loved that sweet lady. Worked with her in Sunbeams many years ago at church. Always had a hug for you & if Wayne and I missed church, she woud always ask where we had been. Reva loved garage sales and Evelyn took her quite often. Last spring she called me and she said "It's getting that time of year & I was thinking about you all and I bet you are getting ready for your garage sale". When I told her I was, she went on to say she always loved to come to my sales and would this time, if she could; didn't need anything, she just loved to get out and enjoy God's world & visit with you. She will be missed.
