Dear Shope Family: I knew Evelyn here at Terrace Grove for just a year, as a member of the Branch Relief Society Presidency, but during that time I learned to admire and love her. Any small thing that I was ever able to do for her was treated by her like a huge thing. Some one asked one day if she wanted a song book and she said no thank you. They thought that she didn't want to sing but realized later that she knew all of the words and didn't need the book. I was fortunate to be able to put the small shawl over her lap that she often needed for warmth. She would nearly alway say "Thank you, I love you". For our sake I wish we could have kept her longer but for her I am grateful that she is able to do the many things I'm sure she had been wanting to do for a long time. Thank you for letting us know her.
