I just found out about Aunt Evelyn’s passing! My deepest condolences to all the family. Such a sweet and beautiful lady!
I was so glad I got to visit with her at Darryl’s funeral and only wish it was under better circumstances!! I was so happy that she actually recognized me. We hadn’t seen each other in over 27 years.
May she Rest In Peace, heaven gained another beautiful angel!
Hugs to all the family ❤️

My condolences to the Riddle family during this difficult time. In the Bible, Jehovah God gives us hope. Acts 24:15 says, “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” Revelation 21:4 says, “and he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more.” Very soon we will see the fulfillment of these promises here on Earth. We hope you find comfort in God’s promises.
