We were sorry to hear about Evelyn's passing . Her sister, Edith, phoned us while we were driving back from Florida and didn't get home in time to be able to drive again today. We'll be thinking of you today , please take comfort knowing that Evelyn is in heaven and not suffering anymore. We will miss her presence here and have fond memories of being at the farm on Marlette Rd for family get-to-gathers and working there. She was loved by us like a sister.
