    Aunt EveLynn was always so beautiful. I wanted to grow up to be just like her. I loved getting to go and spend the time in the summers with her and Uncle Roy.
    I know you guys will miss her. I think about you guys and wonder “what’s up?”. May God comfort you during this time.
    Love you.

    Aunt Evelyn and Uncle Roy were and always will be very special to me. I loved spending time with them every chance I got. I always felt loved and cared for, they were very special that way. I know you will miss them very much but I am sure that we will see them again and I look forward to that. It has been a long time since I have seen any of you but I think about you all sometimes and I wish you well. God Bless You in this time of your loss and keep you safe. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I love you all, Fay
