    Evelyn was a sweet and lovable Christian lady. She will be missed. Our condolences to the family and especially to Norman whom I am sure will miss her dearly.

    Sally Roush was just in at the Church and mentioned she saw in the newspaper that Evelyn went to be with our sweet Jesus. I am sorry for your great loss, because I believe she was one of the sweetest ladies I knew. I am just sorry that I hadn’t made time to come and see you both, that is surely my loss. But, now I know she is healed, whole and dancing the streets of gold with Jesus. Be Blessed and know that you have never left the thoughts of my heart.

    Please forgive me for not staying in contact with you and Evelyn, I regret that very much. I kept thinking I need to call or go by your home, I drove by several times, but saw no car. By not keeping in contact I wasn’t for sure if you were home or that Evelyn was ill. I am so very sorry for you and the family. It will be a joy to see Evelyn in our future with Jesus. I give the funeral home permission to give you my email address, if you have access to a computer or look me up on facebook: CChristine CookInce Flynn. I have been going to Lafayette where Rebecca and the children live, to go church with them at First Assembly of Lafayette, about seven months. I haven’t been at NLIC to have heard any news of you or Evelyn. If you want I will come visit where ever you are living Norm.
