To the family and friends of Evelyn Meiers, I would like to express my deepest and heartfelt condolences. I am truly sorry for the lost that your family is feeling. Experiencing the lost of a beloved family member is one of the hardest thing that any of us can go thru. And because of that my thoughts and prayers are with your family. During this extremly difficult time, please turn to God for comfort and support. He promise to give your family the strength needed in order to endure this great lost. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) Something else that can bring your family comfort is cherishing the wonderful memories that you have of Mrs. Evelyn. These precious memories will console the family in the day's ahead.

So sorry to learn of Evelyn's passing. She was my first cousin, and have fond memories of our childhood. Remember her as "Tootie", an older cousin to be admired. Sincere sympathy to her family.

CandleMy time knowing Evelyn was only for a few years. We always managed to give one another a hard time and had lots of laughs. To Rich, my heart aches for you as I too am going through similar circumstances and know I am praying for you and your family!
