- I was saddened to learn of your loss when I spoke with my parents today.
Evelyn was always such a cheerful and positive person. She and your family
always represented the finest kind of people. I fondly remember our times
together at First Presbyterian Church at the Family Nights, coffee hours, or
in fellowship during and after services. It was a wonderful place to grow
up, populated by Evelyn and those folks that shared her value for family and
service in our Christian community.
I would like to extend my condolences to Chuck, John, Charles, and the
rest of the Tarbell family. I am sorry for your loss and know that God will
comfort you in this difficult time. I am confident that Evelyn is in a
