    Hello Darling! Who can think of Evelene and not think of Conway Twitty? I know Conway met her as she arrived. We would listen to Conway all the way to Tn. Evelene always made me smile. I loved her very much and loved her biscuits and gravy. I know all of you will miss her very much. Just as I do.
    Love Phyllis

    Wanda, I am so sorry for your loss.

  • Wanda, Malinda so sorry for your loss. You both have so many happy memories to share. Evelene so enjoyed life when we were growing up. She was the best looking Mom in town, especially when she cut the lawn. I also remember Conway & Tammy playing often, in fact Mandy should know those songs in her sleep.

    You will miss her each and everyday, not that time heals but you will enjoy the memories so much. I Love you both.
