  1. So sorry to read of your mom’s passing Barbara. I have very fond memories of her from my growing up years. She was always so pleasant and a beautiful lady. May God give you all wonderful memories to fill the void of her absence here on earth.

  2. What a long life Evelyn lived, she was always active doing garden work and sharing it with me and teaching me the proper way to plant seeds. She would do a lot of walking which kept her young. I missed her when she moved away and visited her a couple times, but not often enough. When we first moved in the house next door, she was the mean lady that use to serve food to us high school students and I thought oh no, but I learned to love her as a mom and she took my kids in as her own. She had a lot of love to give. I always told my daughter to go check on MRS. T, and of course Mrs. T was always waiting for her visit. She was a great person that came into our lives and a joy to have has a neighbor. She is happy now with the Captain. Sail away to the sunset MRS. T.

  3. What a special lady Mrs T was to me and my brothers growing up… our dog “Precious” used to go over there everyday and at dinner time I would have to go over and get her, and bring her home she found peace & quiet being at Mr and Mrs T house, they loved her so much.. When Mr T passed away a little piece of Precious did too – she didn’t live long after Mr T. Almost every day I would interrupt there 430pm dinner but they always invited me in for a little treat or just to catch up talking about life and how my family was doing 🙂 What special people the two of them were to my family. I hold my memories close from my childhood with Mr and Mrs T … it makes me smile to know they are together again. Until we meet again…prayers for the family.
