    We are so sorry to hear of Evelyn’s passing. She was a very nice lady and had a very nice family. She will surely be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

      Thank you, John (and your Evelyn). She will be cremated and her ashes interred with my Dad’s at the Kauai Veterans Cemetery at a later date. I’m still in shock.
