Dearest Evie, I am so sorry for your loss. I pray that the Lord comforts you and your family and gives you all his strength in this time of mourning. I pray his peace upon all of you and that he wraps you in his love. Evie you are a amazing woman, with great compassion whom I don't think I would have made it through high school without having you as a friend. I have never gotten to thank you for that so thank you. I will be praying for you all...
