Jeff, Baby, my heart goes out too you & the kids. Especially Lou's daughter & son that wanted too come see her recently but we're unable due too her being ill. After loosing Uncle Johnny this has been such a Hugh shock. Lou was a wonderful giving person. She took Jane & I every where. I will never forget her driving us to spend the day with our brother Edwin the day he passed away after we had spent the day with him. That was truly a gift of Love for the two of us. We all loved too go antique shopping together. The cruise we all took together is still a lasting memory as you are such a "clown.," I love you. Amanda, Lil Jeff, Adam & your brothers & sisters as I watched each of you grow up. My thoughts & many Prayers will be with all of you forever. I loved Lou dearly & will miss her greatly. I love all of you with all my heart. Aunt Evelyn ❤
