Knowing Evelyn was a wonderful experience. We had become good friends and on Monday before her entry into Heaven discussed meeting later in the week. What a shock to learn our next meeting will be with the songs of the Angels. I will miss her greatly and look forward to seeing her again.

To Evelyns' Family,
Evelyn will surely be missed by many. I will truly miss her awesome voice while visiting the Petersburg area. She did a sketch of me a few years during Friday For The Arts, I will always treasure that. My thoughts and prayers are with her family during this difficult time.

Sweet Evelyn,
You will live on in the hearts that love you, which means you will never die. Whisper a song in the breeze to all those left behind and we will know it is you singing to us from Heaven.
