Dick, I am sorry for your loss. I know that you will miss her more than any words can express. You have spent a lot of years together and shared a lot of experiences/memories (both happy and sad).

Evelyn will be missed by many people (her large family and her many friends). I have missed both of you since I moved to Florida permanently.

I'll keep you (and your family) in my prayers, Dick. I'll ask God to hold your hand and put His arms around you.
