    How blessed my life is because of Mrs. Evelyn, from church memories, visiting the nursing home, swimming parties.. I can hear Mr Leo, Mrs Evelyn, My Daddy & Mama talking now!! Growing up, I never knew my life without their love and encouragement. They loved my brothers, my parents, and I like family because we were, no matter the distance! I cried when I heard this news but I knew Mr. Leo is happy to be reunited with Mrs Evelyn. Their kindness & love for each other inspires me still & I will always remember how much they meant to my family!
    Cindy, Billy, Josh, Zachary, Kristi, Mr James, Ms Clara our prayers of comfort are with you and God now has one of the most beautiful women I know. Love, Cheryl
