    Dear Mary Anne, Please know that I am thinking of you and the family that Aunt Evelyn Loved so much. I am so sorry. She was very proud of you and Carolyn as well as her grandchildren and great grandkids. Your mom was the most positive,loving, thoughtful, and energetic person. She always made me laugh too. I remember her telling me the story about trying to explain to her doctor about the time she slipped and fell on an apple and broke her collarbone. The way she told it was hilarious, especially since the doctor just could not get what she was saying to him. Evelyn had a big heart. As a widow herself, she comforted me with kind and understanding words after the death of my husband 15 months ago. Bob, Harvey, and I had visited with her a couple of times during our visits to VA from GA. I will always treasure two of her crocheted angels that now sit in my china cabinet. She gave them to me during one Thanksgiving visit after I had admired a whole table of them she had made. I will miss our phone chats. I know she is rejoicing in Heaven with all of her loved ones on the other side, Uncle Jim, Carolyn, her brother and her parents. Hugs and prayers. Lois Walsh Jackson

    I worked next door to Evelyn many years ago. We became best of friends and even though we did not live close, I always held her close to my heart! Evelyn was the salt of the earth……she loved her family dearly and treated her friends as though they were family. Rest in peace my dear friend….your work on this earth is done!

    Condolences to the Fleming family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to your whole family. Psalms 147:3 says God, heals the broken hearted and binds up their wounds.” May God bring you comfort and peace.”
