It's Now been 25 years since Evelyn has passed away. I think of her everyday as I look at her picture hanging on my wall. I think only hours before her death I shared lunch , conversation and smiles with her. I can still see in my minds eye the orange blouse and black slacks that she worn that day just before Halloween. She will always be in my fondest memories of life. After 25 years , the last hour I spent with her are still fresh in my mind........
