Evelyn and I shared many special times together, first in the world of Real Estate and then visiting at the Dana Pt. Harbor. We had true friendship that created a connection that will never die. I missed her when she moved from San Juan Capistrano to Anaheim but I was happy she was closer to family. She was very caring and watchful over her family. Her deep spiritual beliefs gave her the strength and joy in her life that I so admired. I'll always feel her love and treasure the chats and time we had.
Blessings. Virginia

Dear Family, It was a delight knowing Evelyn. I so enjoyed my short time with her as Pastor and friend. She left footprints on my heart. Rick & I counted it a privilege to pick her up for church. I'm so glad she loved the Lord and is now receiving the goal of her faith!

My Grandmother was the best person anybody could ask for. She was always there for her family and friends whenever we needed her. She was always making sure we had what we needed in life, whether it was sharing her wisdom, spiritual guidance or financial guidance. She will be greatly missed and we take comfort in knowing she is no longer suffering and is home.
All our love to you Grandma,
Raymond Pierce Jr. & Michelle Pierce
