Evelyn, I did not know you but I sure feel as if we had met. I admire your strength and determination to leave this earth they way that you wanted to leave it. I have so much respect for the way you handled your children as I know exactly what you were thinking and why you did and said the things you said. You were a blessing to hear about and a woman whom I know I would have loved dearly. You are in a beautiful place now and pain free. God welcomed you into his warm embrace. Take care of her God and please give her son and daughters the strength that they will need in the coming days and months ahead. My heart goes out to those of you that she left behind. Find comfort in the wonderful memories you have of her and the spunky memories also 🙂 She was a true trooper and after reading about her I understand why. Artie, I love you my friend and I ask that God watch over you in this time as I know how hard this is going to be for the tough guy. They say those of us who are the toughest slam up against the wall the hardest in times like these. You’re a chip off the old block so hold your head up high and smile that she did it her way! I’m here for all of you if you need anything. Please take care of yourselves. God Bless you all.

Art & Family,

Since Art is the only one I know, but have heard so much about the rest of you from him over the years, I want to send you all my sincerest sympathies on your loss. Your mom was a fighter, no doubt, from everything Art told me about her, and as sad as it is, she lived a long life and had alot of love surrounding her and now she is at peace!

Hold onto all the wonderful memories you all shared & may that help the healing process! Again, so sorry for your loss!

You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Your Mom was a great lady and will always be remembered as such. Although she has shed her physical presence here on Earth, you know she will always be by your side, guiding you (and yes, pushing you) along the way.

Much love and many hugs,
