    To the family and friends of Mr. Evans always cherish the fond memories of time spent together and although you may grieve the Bible can be a source of comfort. At (Revelation 21:3,4) it speaks of a time when there will be no more sickness or death, also at (Acts 24:15) it speaks of a resurrection that we all can look forward to. May the peace and love of the God of all comfort be with you all. Comfort can be found in our Creator through prayer and through his word the Bible and in Jesus Christ.

    We have just heard of Bill’s death! Our hearts are broken to lose our dear friend. We sympathize with you and send you our love and prayers for comfort. Because of this virus we didn’t feel comfortable to come visit him and take any chance of giving him worse things to deal with. We sure thought the world of him and looked up to the wonderful example he was. Kent thoroughly enjoyed serving with him in the High Priest Group presidency .

    - Kent and Myra Sharp
    He was such a good, kind person. He will be missed by so many
