    I was honored to be close friends with Evelyn and Percy for many years.  I knew them to be true Christians, loving and caring for family and many, many friends.  Evelyn, as Percy, could always be counted on to lend a positive attitude to the situation, no matter how grave.  They live on, together again now with the Lord, and in the hearts of all who knew them I'm sure.

    Mrs Poulin was sweet and kind. Her new home is no place that earth could not even come close to. God rest her soul. The folks on Minnesota Street will likely agree with me as well as the congregation at Zion.  ALAN
