Kathy, Eddy, Bryan and Greg, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your Mom. I have such great memories of your Mom and our little neighborhood on Hurley Road. Your Mom was always so thoughtful and warm and our family enjoyed many gatherings at your house. She was a great friend and neighbor and I will always remember those "old days" when you were all small and we were all so young.

I'm sorry to read about the passing of Evelyn.  She was my best friend in high school.  I often thought of her over the years but did not have any contact info to reach her.

It’s been many years since I’ve seen Evelyn and the family, but I have very find memories of gatherings at Jim & Aggies.  Please accept my condolences, it’s never easy losing your mother.  She’ll be with you always. 
May you find peace in your memories.  God Bless.

Eddie, Kathy, Bryan and Greg, and Janice and Jeannie and all family, I send my heartfelt thoughts to all of you in prayer for your peace and comfort as our "Babe" is now with the Lord and other loved ones. I have fond memories of times when our family visited with all of you. I have a sweet photo of your sister and mother at Aunt Mamies for a birthday party. I regret not being there today but my husband just had surgery and I have some difficulty maneuvering. 
the peace of Christ be with you all. Love, Beth
