    R.I.P. My dear friend. I shall miss our "chats" during the day and the quilting lessons you were sweet enough to give me. We shall miss you and you will be forever in our hearts. So glad you have been reunited with your dear, sweet Charlie who you always spoke of in such a loving manner.

    Evelyn was a dear friend to my Mother and I. She made such lovely quilts. Each year with the Relay For Life she gave us a quilt to raise funds. My sympathy goes to each of her family member.

    Mrs Estes and I had some great conversations over the years when tax time rolled around. Enjoyed her very much.

    Estes family, I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved mother. I have wonderful childhood memories of Evelyn. I can still remember Mama bringing all of us to your house and it seems Evelyn always had a cake or pie in the kitchen! Evelyn was such a wonderful friend to our mother. I am thinking of all of you today. My sincere sympathy, Kay Shields Martin
