  30. I am so sorry to hear of Evelyn’s passing. She was a very faithful choir member at Brigden United. Evelyn had recently attended the annual meeting at church. I called Evelyn that afternoon to see how she felt about coming back to choir, which was going to start up the following week. We talked for probably an hour or so. It sounded to me like she was going to survive all those treatments but I guess it was not meant to be. God had another plan for Evelyn. She will be singing up in Heaven all those wonderful Gaither hymns for sure. May she rest in peace.

  31. Sincerest condolences Rae and family, you will have some good memories to think about, God Bless!
