With all my heart I want to express my condolences to the family. Evelyn and I grew up in the same community, went to school together, went to church together, we cheered for one another on the basketball team, we were in high school plays together, and I could go on but I won't. Curtis and I graduated together and were starters on a very successful basketball team. Evelyn was a very good player as well. Her parents were part of the community that it use to take to raise a child. We grew up in a small close community, so there was always someone there to correct you if need be. I met one of Evelyn's daughters in the 1980's I think, she was quite young and I don't know which one. I last saw Evelyn at our high school reunion I think about four years ago. We were not in touch otherwise, I never knew she was sick so I was shocked to hear of her passing. Children usually follow in their parents footsteps, Evelyn's parents were God loving people, so I know this is a God loving family. Hold on to God's unchanging hand because all healing comes from him.
