Dear Evans family. I am so sorry to have read of the death of Blanche. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28, 29 and Revelation 21:4. (Please read) May God give you and your family comfort in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our loved ones in death and we will be able to see them again once they are resurrected. With deepest sympathy and warmth of heart.

I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Shelli's grandma Evans. I remember how she used to enjoy so much time with her and always talked a lot about her and her grandpa Evans. She will be missed dearly but you will hold the memories of her close to you.
