Len, Barry, and Linda... So sorry to hear of Evelyn's passing. I always appreciated her energetic, upbeat spirit. It's comforting to know that burdens have been lifted and she is now reunited with her brothers and sisters. Thanks for your special care and attention over these past few years.

I worked with Evelyn at Brookside I will always remember her words of wisdom. She had a wonderful connection with the special needs children she worked with. She treated and loved all of the children as though they were her grandchildren. Her presence on earth will be missed.
