I am so sorry for your loss. May God keep you and bless you and let his Light shine upon you. Love to all
I was just informed of your loss. Evelyn was a lovely person and will be dearly missed by all. Please accept my sincere condolences. I will keep your family in my prayers. I am sure that Cheryl was there to meet her at the Pearly Gates, and they are probably enjoying a cup of coffee on the deck at Piedmont Lake.
My dearest family, though I couldn’t be with you in person, I am there in spirit. Evelyn, Mom, held a special place in my heart- we had some glorious adventures in Alaska! I have gathered pictures of her and lit a special candle so that I can remember her as we all go through this process of letting her go while at the same time holding her in our hearts. There seems to be a need for angels now and our dear Evelyn Marie Wise has important work to do. Love and blessings to all, Nancy.
Our condolences to all of the family. God bless you all.
WE’LL MISS HER ON THE BOAT AND WATCHING THE ACTIVITY ON THE DECK. SHE ALWAYS HAD A SMILE AND A GREETING FOR STELLA AND BLONDIE.
JUDY AND JOHN
