Evelyn and I played together when we were little girls.  We rode our bikes, picked flowers and caught salamanders in the branch.  I will always treasure those memories.  Prayers for the family during this very sad time.

From the first day I met you and our children became sisters, we were like sisters.  I am going to miss you girl but I know that you are at rest and at peace.  I will be there for my daughter and family if she needs me and I know you will be looking down on them. Rest in Peace until we meet again.
