  1. You are our precious Gigi. Thank you for investing in each of our lives and for loving and praying for us. You will always be a treasure in our hearts.
    Love, Jason and family

  2. Evelyn and Frannie were best friends from Jr. High until ages 100 and 101.
    My mom (Fran) treasured Evie’s friendship and love. They wrote letters back and forth from Washington to Georgia and back again, encouraging each other like young friends from the heart “kindred spirits”. They both knew the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and God blessed them with true friendship.
    We, (Diane, Joyce and Jim) are Fran’s children and we will also miss the sweet letters sent to our Mom with so much joy and love included – and we will miss the sweet lady Evie who sent them! Blessings to all of her family.

  3. You were such a blessing in everyone’s lives. You were a friend to everyone you met. You always had an positive attitude even in hard times. You’ve changed many people as they are getting very old. You are so cool and amazing and always gave me a smile. You were so encouraging to me and you will always be in my heart. I can’t wait to see you again. How do you like heaven? I love you to the moon and back, and you know who I am. I will never forget you.
