    For several years I sat behind Evelyn and her sister in church at St Thomas. Each week I always admired their classy appearances and noticed how devoted they were to each other. They always reminded me of my Mom and her sister. After losing my Mom, their smiles and weekly attendance seemed to bring the warmth of my Mom to me. Such lovely ladies. I am so sorry for her sister. Please accept my condolences.
