    To the family of Mrs. Evelyn McKenzie:
    Dear Phyllis and family, we are sending you our sincere sympathy and love to you and the rest of the family. Aunt Evelyn was truly one of the sweetest people we knew. She had such a kind and welcoming spirit. We always felt so welcome in her home. 2 Cor. 5:8 tells us “…to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord”. Heaven has gained a beautiful Angel.

    God Bless you all,
    From your Cousins, Sarah Margaret, Vermell, Thelma’s, Helen and Carolyn
