To Meredith and Sam, my thoughts are with
you. Your Mother provided a much-needed
spark to McKenzie gatherings. If she hadn't
yet visited CrabTree, she will in spirit.

I knew Evelyn from Edelman - I have fond memories of our fun working together on Morris the Cat.
Evelyn was bright, talented, interesting, vibrant. I picture her smiling and she made me smile. Recently, we reconnected through Edelman reunions and friends. I wish I could have spent some time with her again - always a joy.
My deepest sympathy to her family and many friends. Colleen Fahey
