My condolences to the Evans family during this difficult time. In the Bible, Jehovah God gives us hope. Acts 24:15 says, “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” Revelation 21:4 says, “and he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more.” Very soon we will see the fulfillment of these promises here on Earth. We hope you find comfort in God’s promises.

My beautiful Big-little sis. I know you are standing tall and breathing deeply! Free from the limits you delt with for years! You taught me so much! We did things together as young women that we have laughed about for many years. Too many to even pick one to share...besides, it’s our fun secrets! I’ll miss your hugs, your cooking, your MarcoPolo jibber jabber. But I know you are too busy hugging all those that went before and met you at heavens door. Watch over Harmony Hill. They will be lost without you.

I love you to the moon
Your Little-Big sis
