Graham & Family We were so Sorry to read of Evelyns Passing. We've been out of sight for so long that I was amazed to read of "the Small World" connection. I worked with Helen for years & travelled part of the 70s with Noreen MacDonald . I had never known that Your Evelyn was also from "The HIll". Our Thoughts & Prayers are with You – Take Care
