Memories

I remember going to Ralph and Evelyn's farm to have a sleep over with Pam. We would always see the cousins at church. Evelyn would be helping in the kitchen and always had a smile. Our loss here is heaven's gain. She will be with cousin Ralph now. I'm sorry I will not be able to be at the funeral, but my thoughts and prayers are with you. Love and prayer, Corrie and Dennis Stone

Memories

Our sympathies and prayers are with you. Evelyn was a very special person and we have many happy memories. I know now she is happy with Ralph in heaven. We are sorry we are in Idaho so we will miss the funeral, which is very sad. But we saw her last Sunday as she was. We will truly miss her as we do Ralph. Our prayers go out to her family at this difficult time. We love you all.
