Evelynne was a great women and I'm so thankful god gave me the opportunity to meet her and let me be able to get the chance to grow a great friendship with her with the time left she had on this earth. She is gone a lot sooner than I have hoped but I believe god had all kinds of great plans for her! Sorry for the loss of such an amazing and kind hearted women. She will forever be missed but never be forgotten!
