  11. I loved Grandma Evelyn, she was such a godly lady. She never ran out of love for others. She was a great example to me, she was always gracious and kind. Grandma Evelyn knew how to be a friend no matter how old she became. I heard her correct someone once, she did it in such a loving way that no offense or hurt feelings resulted. I hope as I get older I can share God’s love and wisdom with others the way she did. May God bless you, Laura Foster
