So very sorry for the loss of the lovely and gracious Evelyn. God has received a beautiful soul. She was so fortunate to have such a loving and devoted family. I will always remember her sweet nature and her playing of our wonderful Liturgical hymns. Her touch can’t be replaced. My sympathy to Nick, Juliette and Alfred and all of the Ghaphery family.
