    We were so saddened to hear the news of Evelyn passing. She & Howard were wonderful neighbors to us when we lived in Glasgow & my kids thought so much of them both. I’m so thankful we got a chance to stop & visit with them last year when we were in the area. We will keep all the family lifted up in prayer
