    Evelyn will certainly be missed– She did so many nice things for her friends, she made me Raggady Ann and Andy- a pillow, Pj holder, and also burned me a cd of her playing the piano, I thought a lot of her, she was a talented lady.

    so sorry to hear of the loss of my buddy “Giddy” , we had great chats, and I had her number to call when I went to Colorado, but I never did. We all regret these things we want to do and ever do. I know she had been ill and suffering. She will remain one of my dear friends in chat. Chattiebaby

    So sorry to hear about Evelyn’s death. She was such a sweet person and I
    enjoyed seeing and talking to her in the Yahoo Chat Room. She was such a
    caring person. So glad I got to order some Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls from
    her for my great grands. My sincere condolences to the family during your time
    of bereavement.
