To the family of our dear, dear friend Evelyn. Knowing your Mom was so special and to have her friendship throughout the years meant so much. She and Genesta were wonderful and caring friends to my Dad, Herbert and remained so fiercely loyal and concerned as his health started to change. I will always keep close to my heart the wonderful visits up to her home in Liverpool with my Dad where we loved the company of them both..Evelyn and Genesta. My Dad lived on College Street, close to Cobb’s Ridge. We again made many visits to Bridgewater also and were so pleased to have her return to Liverpool where she could have contact with old friends again..I had just sent her a note in the mail and sadly she would not have received it but we wanted all of you to know how important she was to us and how special her friendship was. We loved them both so much. Please accept our condolences and know that your Mom was very special to so many people.
So sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. I know she had a long life but it’s still hard to part with her. She was a great lady. Missed going across the street to chat.when she went to a “Nursing Home”
Please accept my sincere sympathy.
To the family, words are not enough to express how sorry I am for your loss. I have prayed to God to provide you the strength and courage you need in order to handle this difficult moment successfully. We send our prayers and thoughts. She will truly be missed by so many. Please accept my sincere condolence.
