Although I didn't get the opportunity to spend a lot of time with my Aunt Evelyn, the times that I did, she always showed me much love, kindness, and the sweetest disposition. I will always remember her that way. Thank you Aunt Evelyn. Rest peacefully now and say hi to Dennis for me. Love Lillie Downs
