(Jeanie, wife of Terry, daughter-in-law for 45 years): Once when Evelyn was in her 70's, I was sufficiently distressed over assaults on my walking route to consider arming myself. Evelyn objected, "No, no, no! All you need is a Bible! If I ever have car trouble and someone other than a patrolman comes to my window and is trying to get in, I'm going to hold my Bible up to the window, and that will protect me!" I asked, "Evelyn, if someone is trying to get into your house at night, are you really going to hold a Bible up to the window?" She replied, "Heck, NO! I'm going to get my 410 shotgun out of the closet!" "Well, what's the difference?" "I just don't trust handguns!". And when an absent neighbor's burglar alarm went off, my elderly mother-in-law called John Dunn, who said he was one his way. She told him, "I'll meet you there. I'm going over there now with my 410".

I also have tremendous respect and admiration for my mother-in-law's willingness to take in new information in her 60's when she learned that sexual orientation isn't a choice, changing a long-held belief. She discussed this with her Sunday school class and had an affirming relationship with gay members of her church. She'd decided that all of us are God's children, and she stuck by this openly.

I also greatly respect and admire the willingness of Evelyn's sons to make homes for her in the last year of her life, caring for their mother when she became unable to do so herself. Thank you, Terry and Rick and Leo. Also, tremendous thanks to Transitions Hospice of Wake County for their assistance in allowing her to be with family until the end.

I will miss most her love for Mills River Methodist Church and how she loved us ALL. I already have missed her almost daily phone calls. She was a very special lady. Always ready to do what was needed. She loved her Boys and their families!!! Betty B Boyd
