Condolences to the Family

January 19, 2022

My condolences to you all, she and Marty were wonderful neighbors to us. Many, many fun memories. Blessed to know them.

I never knew Evelyn or her family, but just wanted to comment on how wonderful the idea of visiting someone in a ECF is instead of flowers or making a donation. I grew up being taught that the best gift you can give someone is the gift of your time. I have already contacted two local ECF (including Mennonite Home where Evelyn) lived in how to become a volunteer. I will carry on every visit I make in Evelyn’s honor.
