  13. It’s a sad and happy time. A Godly woman has gone home. I wish in my adult life I would have been able to spend more time with my grandma in the beautiful Smoky Mountains. The best memories of my life are the ones spent traveling across the country and spending the week in Ashville, NC at grandma and grandpa’s house. Although the loss is felt here on earth, it seems so strange, as a Christian, to be genuinely excited when one goes home. It is my belief that the time is rapidly approaching when we will all be in that special place, hand in hand, arm in arm, laughing, singing and rejoicing with our Savior. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Love you lots, Russ

  16. I cant tell you how often I think of Grand Pa and Grand Ma Evans and all the Evans girls. What fond memories I have of NC and think how fortunate I am to come from such a beautiful family. It saddens me that Riley and Sidney never had the chance to meet such a beautiful sweet woman. My love and prayers are with you always.
