Can’t express the love that I felt for Evon...she was like my second mother...such a big heart, gave me good advice on several occasions. I’m going to miss her laughter, her stories, her advice and her hugs. I know she’s having a good time with our Lord and savior. She’s also partying with my family members that are gone. She loved my mom and dad, so they are rejoicing her presence. I’ll miss you, mom #2..❤️❤️❤️😞😞😞🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
