Dear Marcia & Frankie.
Please know that your mom is very much in our thoughts and prayers. We have very fond memories of Evy. During our visits to MA, we always made sure to include a trip to Lynn to visit with her. The last time we were together was in August of 2015. She always treated us like "family" and that day was no exception. It was wonderful to see her - she was a very special lady!

Dear Marcia and Franki, Please except my sincere condolence on the passing of your mom, I only met your mom a few times but she was one sharp lady. She always had a smile, she made me feel like I'd known her for a much longer time. She was filled with warmth and kindness .
She lived a long and loved life, May she rest in peace.
