I am so sorry to hear of Evelyn's passing, I remember her and Bucky well when I was a young boy. My mother Christina French would take me out to the House to visit, it was the house she grew up in. Several years back my sister and I stopped to see her and it was great to be there with her, she even showed me where my mother had carved her initials into some of the woodwork in one of the bedrooms. she was a sweet dear lady and she will be dearly missed. I do hope the house stays in the French family. when I'm on my way to the cemetery I always look at the house with fond memories.

Our hearts and prayers go out to Evelyn's wonderful family. May your grieving be lessened knowing how pleased she was with the special 80th Birthday party you surprised her with just such a short time before she passed. Death is temporary, she will live on forever, watching over each of you from Heaven, as she did on this earth. Be good to each other, love one another and make her proud of each and every one of you! Watching the love and care of her and each other in your family is an inspiration to others to do likewise. Evelyn was such a good friend. Love and Prayers for Peace and Comfort in knowing she loved you and knew you loved her, Suzanne, Judy and Diane.

With our Love, Everett & Tina Rideout

My deepest condolences to Evelyn's wonderful family. I have known her for many years. She was such a character and oh so easy to chit chat with. I was happy to have seen and talked with her at a recent supper in Somerville. May she and Bucky look down on their family and say we done good. Rest in peace Evelyn. Mary
