  1. Dear Barbara, Terri, Kevin, It is a very sad thing that your mother has passed away. She was respected and admired for raising and supporting a large family. Losing a mother is a very, very hard thing to experience. I have thought of you kids often and hope that you will stay close and support each other at this time. My best to you. Dixie Evans
