A wonderful lady we knew all our lives through church who always had a beautiful smile and friendly conversation. Many Sunday lunches, visiting and special times were shared by Helen, Mrs Melampy, Mrs Berkenstock and others. They are all missed but together once again.

Aunt Evelyn has always been such a "Sweet & Special" person to us. She sure knew her Race Car Drivers and enjoyed talking to Charles about Tony Stewart. It was too bad that she did not make it here on earth until her 100th Birthday, but the Good Lord knew she was tired and wanted her to be free from all of her pain and suffering. I am sure she is smiling down on all of her Family. We love all of you and we will miss Aunt Evelyn. God Bless You.Charles & Faye Poindexter
