I am saddened, yet rejoice that Sis.Evans has received her reward of eternal life with her Lord. She was a sweet spirit, a loyal member, and faithful attendee of Providence Park Baptist. I can still picture her in worship service, always sitting with her good friend, the "other" Ruby Evans. May God comfort and strengthen her family and all of us who grieve the loss of this angelic one. Deacon Anthony Robinson, Providence Park Baptist Church
