My Aunt Evelyn graduated to heaven this week. Can you just imagine her joy today?? I wish I could be with my cousins tomorrow for her funeral, but I can't. I just keep remembering all the sweet times our family has had together. For several years, Aunt Eve was probably my mom's best friend or at least one of her favorites along with their other sisters and brothers. For the past decade or so, she has been the matriarch of our huge family. I think every single one of us (and there are a LOT of us) love her and will miss her so much. Here's a big hug from me to Janice, Virginia, Elaine, John, Arlene, and Phyllis.

Many hours spent with grandmom, lots of stories told. Its always been comforting to me to know that when she said she was praying about something you were going through or you children were going through, that she meant it๐Ÿ’—
