I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Evelyn. I am the Executive Director of the Randolph-Asheboro YMCA in Asheboro, NC and your mom and dad were very special to the members and staff here at the Y. Your dad did 1,000's of hours of volunteer work and saved the Y 1,000's of dollars. Your mom helped so many of our members with social and spiritual guidance and it was always great to see them together. They were truly two of our angels and missed here at the YMCA.
