  • I remember, one summer, this tree root was growing into the side of the basement, and grandma was determined to dig it up. If I recall correctly the shovel handle broke, and smacked her in the hip. I don’t know if she was laughing or crying or if we even fixed the root problem, but we went inside and got grandma some ice, and laughed about it. I tell that story and I laugh hard just like it was yesterday. I love you grandma, and I will miss you.

    Love, Aaron

  • I am saddened by the passing of my friend, Evelyn. She took care of my son, David, when I worked and lived in the Tri-Cities years ago. I learned so much from “Evie” as David called her about parenting, caring, and loving! David is who he is today, in part, because of Evelyn’s care and teaching. She was a “Jewel” and a Godsend to us. I am blessed to have shared a friendship with Evelyn!

    We lost an ANGEL, but our loss is Heaven’s gain! Tom, Chris, Cory, Blaine, and Nancy, you are in my thoughts and prayers.

    With Love,

    Ann Lewis
