What a beautiful woman of God. Her love, kindness and compassion to everyone was beyond measure. I knew her at First Presbyterian Preschool,and her love for every worker or child was an example to behold. She touched us all with the love of Christ. She truly was a very very special person and a Proverbs 31 women. Thank you Miss Evelyn for your love, encouragement and smiles.
