Remembering her wonderful and gentle soul will forever remain in our hearts. May she rest in peace!
Evelyn was my dear friend. Whenever she needed something done, she would call me. One time I worked on the "boiler room" in the basement, cleaning and painting everything. Long hot job, at the end of the day I told her I needed a beer! She doesn't drink beer, but she had some in the fridge that a friend had given to Harold a long time ago. So yes, I couldn't wait and popped that cold frosty beer. FLAT. It had been in the fridge longer than she could remember. We had a big laugh.
Another time, I did some painting in the front of the house and she sent me to the hardware store to get replacement numbers for the address, 7215 Creveling. I picked out some real nice metal numbers and put them on the front wall next to the door. She came out for the final inspection and to give the "ok" and a hug. But then I told her "oh no- it reads 7251!" She did a double-take then laughed and hit me in the arm saying "You can't fool me." Then I got my hug.
She was wonderful.
