  2. CandleImageMom, my heart is broken. I think of you night and day. You were a little warrior but you was mine for 68 years. We had some wonderful times shopping for vegetable and flower plants. O, how you loved shopping at garage sales and thrifts stores. Fishing with Dad, Donald and Leisha at the coast and anywhere y’all could find a fishing hole. Mom like talking about her times with her parents and sisters when they were young. My sister, Leisha took excellent care of Mom after her transplant then it was my turn. Our Mother only wanted to be with her Children.

    Mom, you are surely missed and was always “Loved”.

  3. CandleImageMy sincerest condolences to you and your family. Praying for your strength and comfort. Love you cousin’s.

  4. CandleImageLife is but a stopping place, a pause in what’s to be, a resting place along the road to sweet eternity. We all have different journeys, different paths along the way, we all were meant to learn some things, but never meant to stay. Our destination is a place far greater than we know, for some, the journey’s quicker, for some the journey’s slow. And when the journey finally ends, we’ll claim a great reward, and find an everlasting peace in heaven with the Lord. Love you all cousin Shirley, Don and Ronnie.

  5. CandleImageTo the Evans family: Scripture tells us: God is our refugee and strength a very present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1. I didn’t know Ms. Evans personally, but I do know her sister Hanna Dorothy Kelley. My late husband was from Muldoon, TX (Arthur Butler) and he would talk about the family. I wanted to send my thoughts and prayers during your time of sorrow. God bless all of you. Jean Butler, San Antonio TX
