    Dearest Connie and family, I am so sorry to hear about your loss of your sweet mother, Evelyn. I
    loved spending time at your house across the street from Turner. We spent many hours just hanging
    out or talking in the driveway. Evelyn was always so welcoming and kind to me. I fondly remember
    her laugh and sense of humor. She always worked so hard taking care of other people. My grandma
    and great aunt spent time at Sharon Lane. My prayer for your family is that you will seek the grace
    and love of our Lord during this sad time. She blessed so many people including me, and I will never
    forget her sweet spirit. Love always, Patty Bradford Attwood

    I remember all of the family reunions in Lindsborg, she was always so happy to see everyone! My
    grandmother...her sister in law..would tell us stories about her brother and all the family. I'm so sad
    that we didn't get to meet him. But so glad to get to meet my cousins!
    Love and hugs to all of you!
