The Evans family, extended family and friends, I come to learn today of you loss of Mrs. Evans. The last time Mrs. Evans and I talked we were in Marshalls a year ago. Even then, she was reminding me to call her Velma , I told her I'm old school, she said with a smile "I know Gene"then said with concern " Gene, how are you doing?",we exchanged conversation for about thirty minutes, and in it she expressed how thankful and grateful she is of her family.
After leaving Marshalls , and reflecting on our conversation, and the peaceful spirit Velma (Mrs. Evans) has..it was meant to be for her and I to meet at Marshalls that day and talk, and now I see why.
There are generations of women like Mrs. Evens that came up when there were no civil rights laws and the baggage that went along with it, women who works and deeds with family, community and made it better.
Dale and family,deeply sorry for your loss. May you celebrate your moms life with the joy she put into your hearts and the life she put into your souls. God bless each one of you. Terry and the Sager family
My condolences to the Evans Family..... A lovely Lady, Vera was and did in her life here.... an inspiration to your family.....
