I was so sad to read of Julia's passing. Julia was such a sweet lady. My fondest memories are of attending the Presbyterian Church with Julia. Julia and herb barely missed a sunday. She lived a wonderful and full life. My sympathy to her family and know that she is in a better place

Dear Evans family,
Last night I read in the Daily Republic that your mother had passed away. I was sorry to read that, but yet, she had such a long and full life. But you will miss her! They were wonderful neighbors.
I have no idea what any of your address are so I decided to try and reach you this way. My sympathy to all of you.
