    My deepest sympathy to Evie's family. We worked together at the Milford Board of Education for quite a few years, and she was one of the most wonderful friends I could have had. She was a great "Mom" and "wife". She was a lot of fun, and made my days a joy to just see her. I shall miss keeping in touch with my friend.
