    Shane and the Evensons….Please go on with strength and peace in your hearts. You kept your father in his home which was his wish; sat at his side; talked to him even when he couldn’t answer. Hold the memories of his active past close to you. He lives on in those whose lives he touch with his acts of kindness and the sharing of his energy.

    In sympathy, Mimi
