Miss Evelyn is a dear friend to me and my family, I thank the Lord for the years of friendship and her faithful friendship with my dad. She will be greatly missed by us. It is our lose but heavens gain. We thank God that we have the hope that we will see her again, you have our deepest sympathy. We will continue to remember you in our prayers. Gerry Locklear
