  • Evelyn was a great person to have as a neighbor. We lived across the street from her for almost 6 years. She liked to “spoil” our dog, calling her over for a visit whenever Molly was loose. I think Evelyn would have kept Molly all the time if we would have let her. After we moved in 1997, Evelyn would always ask how Molly was when Gary and I would go visit with her. She was a beautiful person.
