I just now found about Aunt Evelyn.  So so sorry to hear of her passing.  She was a helluva woman and a wonderful aunt.  I will truly miss her and her laughter.  Prayers to Paula and Chris.  As the song lyrics go, I guess Uncle Paul can now quit "waitin' on a woman!"

I am so terribly sad to hear of Evelyn's passing. We have been such good friends since grade school.  We spent hours together dancing, laughing, crying and all the other things good friends do.  We didn't get to visit much in the last few years except for phone calls but I always knew that she was there if I needed her.  Good-bye sweet friend~~love you and will miss you always.
