    We were saddened to hear of Evelyn’s passing. Although we didn’t know her well, we felt a connection to her through my mom and dad.Cliff and Connie CarteeWe spent some time with Evelyn in June 2004 where she and her family were so generous to open the farm for my dad’s memorial service. I will always remember her as well as her family for being so special.
    Thank you,

    I was searching for old friends on the internet and your Mom’s obituary popped up. I know it has been several years, but I had to comment in the Memory Book. I loved your family so much and still think of you often. I hope you and your families are doing well. I know you miss your mom and dad. They were grand people and I had so much fun whenever we visited the farm.
