Dear Debra, Buzz and family,

There are no words, only Prayer and God's Love.

When I went into Merwick Evelyn was the first person to come to my room. She welcomed me and put all my fears to rest. Evelyn was a very special friend. I am so very thankful God blessed me with a friend like Evelyn.

May God bless and keep you.

To Debra, Buz, Julian, and Ariel:

Ms. Evelyn, as she was affectionately known to me, was much more to me than just my Grandmother's friend. She was my confidant, a woman of great integrity, and truly a child of God. Ms. Evelyn kept it real and wasn't afraid to speak the truth about life's experiences whether good or bad. I'm so greatful for the friendship that she and my Grandmother, Catherine Glover, were able to have. God placed two bold, but loving ladies together for a short while; however, the impact was Enormous!! I thank God for Ms. Evelyn. She will live in my heart forever!

Dearest Debbie, John John & Family

It sadden my heart to hear Eve had transitioned from labor to reward and this verse came to me

II Timothy 4:7-8

I have fought a good fight; I have finished my course; I have keep the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness which the Lord, the righteous Judge, shall give me on that Day - and not to me only, but unto all those who love His appearing. Gone but never to be forgotten. Someone very dear to my heart.

With Love & Sympathy
