  1. Dear Lucille, Bernice and families, Rita and I extend our sympathies to you on the passing of Evelyn. We know that you will miss her. But we rejoice that Evelyn is now with her Savior, Jesus Christ, in glory. We are sorry that we cannot be at her funeral. We have commitments that cannot changed. We want you to know that we loved Evelyn and will miss seeing her when we visit Westminster Church. Her ready smile, her cheerful demeanor, and her willingness to jump in and work have been a part of Westminster Church for many, many years. The Lord certainly blessed the congregation and us through her. With deepest sympathies, Dick and Rita Gerber
