    I loved Mary Evelyn. She was my friend, my doctor, my neighbor at one time. We shared a lot of laughs and also some pain. Prayers for all of her family.

    Mrs. Mary was a kind and generous person. She was always there to lend a helping hand. The Bible says that God will wipe out all tears from faces at Revelation 21:3,4. What a joy this will be!
