To the DeLoney and Hubbard families: I extend to you my deepest sympathy. Evelyn was a Lady in the truest sense of the word. She was pristine in her demeanor and elegant in her attire. I admired her ability to be a loving and devoted wife, mother, daughter and sister and at the same time be an outstanding professional in her career. Please take solace in the fact that you will see her again and when you do, there will be no more goodbyes. May GOD give comfort to each of you.

I had the honor of having Mrs. DeLoney as my 3rd grade teacher at Marquette Elementary School. She had such a grace and elegance. She was my Clair Huxtable before there was a Clair Huxtable. I lift her spirit in prayer and will hold this family in my heart during this holiday season.
Blessings and Love,
