Not sure what to say?

Today is the one year anniversary of Momma's passing.
I sat at the piano playing "In the Garden" - her most requested hymn and can so clearly remember her singing the chorus as I played it so many times for her. Momma's voice, of course, is no longer here to sing as I play, but her love is and always will be. Besides her incredibly special legacy of a love for music, I cherish the lessons she taught of always being there for someone/anyone who needed a kind word, a smile,...

Remembering Evelyn is an honor in itself. As we transcend in life we realize the importance of love and kindness, these were characteristics she shared with all the people who she touched in life. I will always have fond memories of Evelyn, who was and is in our hearts a truly remarkable woman! Love to all of her family and closest friends!

How blessed we are to have loved and been loved by such a beautiful, kind, gentle, loving person. Rest in peace, Aunt Evie.

Evelyn was a one of a kind woman! She will always hold a special place in our hearts. She was warm hearted and a joy to be with. I will always remember her radiant smile! God Bless Evelyn, her family and all of her friends.

"The life of the dead is placed on the memories of the living. The love you gave in life keeps people alive beyond their time. Anyone who was given love will always live on in another's heart." ~ Marcus Tullius Cicero

My deepest condolence to your family. Xoxoxo

Our condolences to your family. We will pray for your peace.

Our MOST LOVING Momma - you so consistently described yourself as a "tough, old bird" but your love was and will always be as gentle as the brush of Monarch butterfly wings (that were so special to you) and as strong as our Heavenly Father's arms around us. Peace, joy, and light fill all my memories of you!

Offering our deepest condolences during this difficult time.
