Dad and I send our condolences on the passing of your mother. At times like this it is hard to see past the sorrow. Just remember the words to that old hymn, When we all get to heaven, what a day of REJOICING that will be!

Steve & I (Colette) we were so blessed to not only have Sis E (thats how she signed our paces in green marker) as a Monitor in Parkway Christian Academy but also to listen to her play the baby grand piano & sing only the way she could sing to the Lord. I know she loved us kids so much & she prayed for us! & I can only think that we r here still serving the Lord today because of her example to us all those years she was here at Parkway Apostolic Church.

I so much loved any and every time I could be in the presence of Auntie Evelyn, which was never often enough. Her loving smile alone was enough to fill a room with joy and happiness. Perhaps my fondest memory of her was during a very tough time. She was visiting Dad in Springfield, in Jan 2007, when we had the worst ice storm possible. Power was lost city-wide for over a week. She stayed with Dad during the outage and never waivered for several days, staying strong and comforting the situation. Such a wonderful and beautiful Auntie we will always cherish. I am so blessed that my family also was able to share her with you. May The Lord comfort you and keep you...Love to All,

Roy, Donna, Courtney and Josh Reece, and Cory Prince
