Aunt Evelyn; The peace of our Lord Jesus Christ is with you. You are blessed with our Lords salvation and everlasting life. And I know you are dancing in His Courts in perfect beauty with your sister Helen and are in the welcoming arms of your family in Heaven. God Bless you Aunt Evelyn. Your nephew, Gary
To: Douglas, Debbie and the entire Evelyn Walker family,
I'm so sorry you lost your mother; the one who loves you from the very beginning. Who from heavenly places, loving you still. With heartfelt sympathy and love, your mother was such a lovely lady always. She was so very proud and pleased with her two precious children, Douglas and Debbie. I called her regularly. She loved to tell me stories of her grand children and great grand children. They delighted her so. Recently, she took time to send me a thank-you card for our telephone visits. "I can feel your love over the wire" she wrote. She sounded so good the last time we spoke. I was shocked to hear of our loss.
Love always, Auntie Lee
Give rest O Lord, to thy servant Evelyn, who has fallen asleep.
Odpocivaj v pokoj.
Evelyn is my sister (seven siblings in our family). The family story regarding Evelyn's
baptism goes like this:
Evelyn was baptized at the old St. John's Russian Orthodox church on Jackson St. in
Passaic, NJ. When asked "name this child" my father responded "Evelyn". The priest
Father Kohanik replied "that's not a valid name". "Its not in the Bible". With that my
father's sister our aunt (Teta Leshkanya) chimed in and said "her name is Pauline". So
Evelyn was baptized Pauline which became her middle name, on her civil birth certificate.
Evelyn thus became the only one, of seven sibs, that had a middle name. A fact that she was always very very proud of.
