I have so many good memories of times and meals spent at Sister Evelyn's house. She was like kin to my family. Love to you Judy, Ruth and Connie. My prayers will be with you all, as well as with your families today and in the days to come. I'm praying that God gives you comfort. We can also rejoice in that she has won the victory that we all hope to win one day! Love, Angela Townsley Wisdom
