She was a beautiful person and it was my honor to have taken care of her. She will be missed
Oh, my aunt Evelyne, how you will be missed!! You were a bright spot during my visit back home to Michigan. I was looking forward to seeing you again this summer when I came home to visit my sisters. I will miss all the family stories you had to tell. Your mind was so sharp recalling events passed. You’re a piece of my childhood that I will never forget.
May you Rest In Peace with our beloved Uncle Johnny and all of your sisters. Give our mom, Rose, a big hug for us! I know you are smiling 💕
Dear Larry & Sue, I am truly sorry for your loss. I so enjoyed visiting with your mom at lunch time with Lorna at the Brook and helping her when I could as she and Lorna lunched together at the table. Also then meeting you. May she rest peacefully with her husband after living such a long life. God bless you,
