Condolence from Karen Copeland on October 6th, 2009 12:00 am

I can’t believe that you are gone. You stopped by just a week or so ago filled with hope for the future. I will miss those long conversations admist the smells of horses at the barn and Little Man poking his nose through the door at you as we talked vying for your attention. Those conversations were consoling for us both. Most of all I will miss your smile that lit up your eyes. Your humor was infectious. I know that you are in a better place but know that you will be sorely missed!

Condolence from Charlene Poole on October 7th, 2009 12:00 am

Evelyn was my supervisor at Qualex for 4 years. What I remember most about Evelyn is her dedication, strength in what she believed in and love for all people. Evelyn had a saying in our department at Qualex, when we werent sometimes getting along. “You don’t have to like each other but you will respect each other”. I will miss Evelyn so much, we’ve had so many long conversations and emails. Wow, I just thank God for putting her in my life.
Ashley and Katelyn always hold to God’s promises no matter how life’s situations may look. Don’t ever give up on plans God has made for your life. God knows all our challenges and he can turn things around for your good.

I just found out about Evelyn’s passing and I have to say the world is a lot less bright without her in it. I knew her at Pine Forest high school and from the neighborhood in Braxton Hills. She was a wonderful person full of laughter….
