I had the great honor of caring for Miss Evelyn. She was just so sweet and I loved being with her. She was a greatly loved lady and I consider it a honor being a short part of her life. Thank you for letting me be part of her wonderful life.

To Evelyn’s family: Evelyn and I met at CKL&I at bingo about 12-15 years ago and became good friends. We have enjoyed playing bingo all these years. She was one of the sweetest, kindest people I have ever known. I will miss her immensely. She was a joy to know.
